Hello. My son just learned today that he is waitlisted at cal poly slo as an economics major. He is an incoming freshman for fall 2021.
4.45 fully weighted gpa
4.17 CSU capped gpa
3.9 unweighted gpa
California resident, white
Significant athletic extracurriculars with very lengthy, demonstrated commitment achieving at state level, community service, and leadership (but no place to detail on CSU app other than time commitment)
Do you have any information on his odds of getting in off the wait list given this unusual admissions cycle? Should he send an email expressing continued interest and supplying fall semester grades which were 4.83?
Also, do you think this decision bodes poorly for his chances at UCSB, UCSD, and SDSU? At least with the UCs they have his essays and details on his ECs/achievements.
Thank you for your feedback. It is very much appreciated
