    Can I get in by initially declaring Economics as my major, and then add another major (i.e CS)?

    Only at Universities that do not admit by major. That would mostly be private universities, plus a few universities where you can apply "undecided" and selection for the major is not competitive (IE., all undecided students with the required grades get into major).
    At most public universities you must declare a major when you apply, then you're admitted to that specific major, and it's very difficult to switch.
    Look at the conditions to switch from a major to another at Lehigh, Northeastern, Villanova, Stevens, Fordham, SMU, WPI.
    You can apply and switch with no hurdle at Union, Lafayette, Triniry, Centre, Franklin and Marshall, Dixjinson, St Olaf, St Lawrence, Bucknell, Wooster, Wabash, Earlham.
    Among public universities, you can apply undecided and switch to CS later at UFlorida, Penn State (called "DUS"), and Miami Ohio.
