Can I get in Washington even if I'm rejected by College of Engineering?

Hello, I am applying for University of Washington, Seattle.

I chose Computer Science as my first major and Pre-Computing/Engineering as the second in order to lower the risk. However, I worried that College of Engineering is too hard to get in even for an undeclared program. So I e-mailed UW to change my selections to 1. Pre Major (General Undeclared) 2. Computer Science. The admission officer simply observed that I was to lower the risk rather than change majors. She replied that they were not changing majors but it's fine because they would not consider majors in their review.

Does it mean that even if I was not qualified to get in College of Engineering, it won't affect whether I could be admitted to University of Washington? I am not pretty sure...

    Yeah the admission process for the College of Engineering is totally separate from the UW admissions. You can get into UW but not get into the College of Engineering. If you're not directly accepted, you can still go to UW and apply to the computer science major through regular admissions though I've heard that it's tougher to get in through regular admission.
