    If I remember correctly, the Congratulations message stated your major. In the link, there is no major mentioned so I would say this posting may not be real but as @eyemgh stated, only time will tell.

    Yes, I believe in waves, but one person doesn't make a wave. If ten people report it, then it's a wave.

    Scroll down. He/she posted the full picture later, with the major (Comp Sci) and the fact that they were accepted from over 65,000 applications. It looks to me like an early release error, since they shut it down right after.

    Congrats! That's a great program!

    How in the world do they choose from 65,000 applications without using a holistic approach? Especially if they are being lenient with students that didn't include their 7th/8th grade math classes. Seems like an impossible selection process.

    I prefer the Cal State’s “numbers game” over the holistic UC process any day!

    The site now says maintenance scheduled for Sunday maintenance rather than the usual Wednesday maintenance. Maybe a wave of acceptances for Monday?

    It would be nice but I'm still expecting 2/15 for OOS and 2/16 in-state

    @momamet, read the pinned thread at the top about the MCA. It will clarify how they rank students. Once you understand it, you'll realize "holistic" admission is far more a black box.
  • momametmomamet Registered User Posts: 47 Junior Member
    I think I understand the MCA pretty well, but it just seems like many many applicants would score really high, and at that point, how do they pick? High SAT’s, High GPA, 3-4 years of FL, lots of Math and science, work in the major of study, and ec’s - so many students have all of that....what am I missing? I guess I don’t fully understand it.

    Each major picks from top down from the applicants to their major. I don't see.what is hard to understand?

    One more question - and please excuse my ignorance if this was addressed somewhere else in the pages and pages and pages of dialogue about MCA. Is there an MCA total max and if so, what is that number?

    Hey everyone! I know this might be a bit early as acceptances are just starting to roll out. But I'm currently a second year Computer Science major at Cal Poly and if anyone has any questions about the school/my experience/anything at all feel free to send me a message or ask me a question in the thread. Super excited for all of you and best of luck!
