<p>Interested/stuck between either EE or CS; although I don't really know if this has any tangible effects on admission. Comments are appreciated.</p>

<p>you'll get in....</p>

<p>are u serious? 4.0/30 with strong schedule? ur joking right?</p>

<p>Well, he won't get in if he writes abysmal essays. lol.</p>

<p>In-state, 4.0 GPA, and a tad low ACT (average is 31 for engineering). You have a good shot at getting in.</p>

<p>Thanks for the comments. Anyways, the thing is, I want to feel confident in terms of admissions, and I feel pretty confident, but a quick question I had, what negatives are there for applying to LSA and taking first year engineering courses, then transferring into engineering after freshman year, a friend of mine did this because at the time he was unsure what he wanted to do, and he has also recommended this for me; I'm stuck between pre-med and engineering and wanted to know what negatives there are for doing LSA first year then transferring, or visa-versa.</p>

<p>transferring from engineering to LSA is much easier than the other way around</p>

<p>^^^ "much easier"; Why? What inhibits someone from LSA to switch into Engr, or at least when compared to Engr to LSA.</p>

<p>just apply to engineering. I'm sure you have a good shot of getting in. Dont sweat much</p>

<p>If you apply before October 15, I like your chances.</p>

<p>^ Thanks Alexandre. But, why specifically before Oct. 15; I thought EA deadline was Nov. 1?</p>

<p>I'll say apply as soon as you have everything done and carefully reviewed. U-mich is rolling, well, probably only for those who apply really early. I know tons of people who had everything in before Nov 1 and still haven't heard anything back.</p>

<p>Ok, but is there anything special about Oct. 15?</p>

<p>The deadline is November 1, but if anything arrives on November 2, you are no longer considered. So make sure all your files are in by Oct 15.</p>

<p>You'll get in.</p>

<p>I have about a 3.2 uw, maybe a little more, and I'm oos. I got in. (But I wrote some bangin essays)</p>

<p>Jhchawk, what kind of school did you attend? What was your SAT/ACT score?</p>

General Comments:</p>

<p>^ Yeah my stats were really similar to Jhchawk and I got in too to engineering</p>

<p>NHS is a BIG help, not to mention science related extracurriculars. I got in with traits much worse than yours (3.6 GPA), out of state and little extracurriculars, plus mich has a 56% acceptance rate from fall. 99% chance you'll get in, don't sweat. You have great stats.</p>

<p>Teaman, where did you get your 56% acceptance rate from? I saw someone say that OOS applicants were admitted at a higher rate this year, but I can't find that stat anywhere on the website. Link?</p>
