This is super exciting time for everyone! I remember this time two years ago! My name is Josh, and I'm a current Sophomore doing an ECE/CS double major. I'm part of CMU Greek life, and a 15-112 TA and well as an HCII research assistant! If you have any questions about the school, please let me know! Some of may you may recognize me from last year as the guy who made the 2019 group, and I'm here for the same reason this year!
If you are accepted (or even if you aren't but plan on doing RD), please join the CMU 2020 FB group! As in past years, many current students will be here to answer your questions and guide you through your journey until you get here. The group was honestly one of the most useful things for me two years ago. Especially being ED, I met tons of people who I am still really close friends with today. As the year progresses and certain due dates arrive for various documents, scheduling, etc, we will be there to help. Orientation week will come before you know it!
The group is called "Carnegie Mellon University Class of 2020", and the banner is a picture of Hunt Library (cuz, why not?). This is the group where all of the current and future CMU students will be.
Unfortunately, there are a few similar spam groups created by people who are not affiliated with CMU, including some college websites. In particular, there is a group with ~600 people in it right now that goes by the same name (and has a different group photo). Please be sure NOT to join those groups. If you have trouble finding the correct group, please message me.
Also, if you have any friends who aren't on CC who you know have been accepted, please tell them to join!
Thanks, and good luck in a few hours! I can't wait to meet some of you! Let me know if you have any questions!
