I’m a junior who’s trying to see if I have have any chance at applying for these majors next year (or perhaps seeing how much I need to raise my decent PSAT/SAT score to make the cutoff).
I calculated my CSU GPA (so far) and it’s around 4.15.
Haven’t taken the SAT yet but I’m using my PSAT score to see where I currently stand.
It’s honestly not great, but decent considering I didn’t really study (am definitely planning to study for the actual SAT though).
At the moment, the eligibility index for CS is 4675 and SE is 4450.
Since CS is not in the college of engineering, I believe that the formula is just SAT score + (GPA * 800) as for all of the non-engineering majors. My EI would be 4510.
SE is in the college of engineering so the formula is [(Math Score *3) + English Score]/2 + (GPA * 800). My EI would be 4420.
Assuming the eligibility index stays around the same next year (I heard it fluctuates year to year), it seems like I don’t make the cutoff for either of these majors.
I would just like to check if my math correct. Not in denial or anything, just would like to see if I’m correct in calculating my EI so I accurately know where I stand.
