Importance of Rank for CMU
I am aiming for the College of Engineering, specifically the ECE major. According to the website, the average rank of students coming in is around 4%. Does this make rank a "make or break" factor (specifically a "break" factor)? Could a higher rank (around 12%) be compensated for with the help of higher than average SATs and ECs?
