    I got rejected for EE today also.

    GPA: 3.95
    SAT: 1370/2060
    ACT: 31

    CP was one of the few out of state schools I'd consider going to. Oh well.

    My son was rejected for ME today also. Not surprising, but a little disappointing.

    GPA: 3.55
    ACT 28

    No work experience

    It looks like he is going to be accepted to Cal Poly Pomona though. He got an email from the ME dept inviting him to Engineering Day and saying that their department has recommended him for admission for Fall 2010 to their program. It congratulated him because it said that they had way more applicants than they had space for.

    Good luck to everyone else!

    Cal Poly was my dream school and I just can't believe how competitive Cal Poly is this year.

    ^ Sorry BlaBlaBoi. I know it's disappointing. Where else have you applied? Have you been to other campuses as well?
    I was really hoping that my son would get into SLO also because of the reputation, location, and price. :(

    Good luck with your other choices.

    I applied to Cal Poly Pomona, all the UCs, USC and Harvey Mudd.

    As of today, I got accepted into UCR, UCI (got into their honors program too)

    Cal Poly is my first rejection....

    It's hard to believe some of you were turned down... definitely a very competitive major so don't feel bad. Blabla, I had stats lower than yours and I got in under business administration... obviously less competitive.

    Some consolation... the school makes it way too hard to get into some majors and way too easy for others. I don't think this helps the school. My sister goes there. Its a nice enough school, but not half as nice as ANY UC I have seen. Campus is run down and SLO , except for the downtown area is shabby. Go to a UC, all the students had to meet the same standards and they have way more to offer.

    ^ PVHS, I actually agree with you, even if cal poly was my first choice.
    do you guys think we can appeal?
