Two questions about PSU

1. I want to double major in Pre-Med and Economics. So on my app, should I put down Eberly or Smeal as my college of choice?

2. If GPA is 2/3's of PSU's admission decision, do I have a strong chance with just a 3.8 UW GPA alone?

    1. I would call and ask an admissions counselor but I'd imagine you just pick one
    2. I think you're unweighted 3.8 should be fine
    Good Luck!!

    Economics is no longer in Smeal. If you want to save tuition dollars select Liberal Arts/Economics first. It will save you about $1000 dollars a year. When you declare a second major your tuition will still be based on your first declared major.

    @SCbob Thanks for that tip! I'm going to drop Eberly and choose the Liberal Arts college for Economics
