    Your stats seem kinda low. That was my SAT and I got ejected ED (but I did CS not engineering). Also CMU recommends a second subject test (I think it is science for engineering).

    I’ve applied to CMU, and although your stats might be a bit low, I think you have tremendous ECs. Seeing that most colleges like EC involvement you have a good chance
