Cal poly nutrition major chances?

Hi,
My daughter has calculated her MCA and thinks it’s 4044. Any idea if she will be a competitive candidate for the nutrition major?

    How does her CP GPA and Test scores compare to the averages for the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Science? What about her his course rigor?

    Average CP GPA: 4.00 Average ACT: 28 Average SAT: 1325

    SLO projections shows 413 applicants for 60 spots. If you take an average 33% yield, then the acceptance rate for Nutrition is around 44%. Again this is conjecture since SLO does not post their yield by major.

    Her CP gpa is 3.8 with rigor and ACT is 32.
    I’m guessing she is in the running but far from a sure thing.

    Definitely competitive but until you have an acceptance in hand, not a sure thing. Best of luck to her.

    hey! I'm a current nutrition major at cal poly. I'm gonna go ahead and say that she has a good chance but of course nothing is for certain. I got in with around the same gpa and a 34 ACT. If you have any questions about the nutrition program here, feel free to ask!

    Thanks, @happywaffles . It’s so hard to wait! Are you enjoying the program? Can you get into the classes you want/need? Do most nutrition majors graduate in 4 years? Is that a realistic goal?
