Applying Undecided and then Switching to Engineering?

Hi everyone! So I've been talking to friends and stuff and a lot of them have a major they want but are applying to schools as undecided so that they have a higher chance of getting into the school. Then they will switch to the major they want. I was wondering if that was a smart idea. I want to get into the engineering program at schools like Virginia Tech, UVA, George Mason, etc. But my test scores/grades/other credentials are mediocre. Would it be smart to apply undecided first?

Thanks in advance!
