I'm applying to csus, my primary choice being sdsu, and the only thing left is my major. I have undeclared down right now. I decided to take my general classes with some "intro to..." classes and see what I like from there. I've been doing some research and I'm wondering if this would work.
I know a class I wanna take is jap, and most likely minor on it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's harder to get into impacted majors, right? If that's the case, then if I were to apply for jap, and it's not impacted, as my major, would that actually increase my chances to get accepted? I figured that since sdsu takes the top from each major, it would be easier to get accepted into a non-impacted major. Can someone tell me if my reasoning is right? (Surely it can't be that simple) And explain how majors, if at all, affect the acceptance chances? Also, what if I got accepted with a jap major and wanted to change into a more impacted major like computer engineering, how would that work?
Thanks in advance
