chance me for my dream school!

<p>sophmore gpa:3.1/3.5
junior gpa: 3.8/3.8
uc gpa: 3.55 (upward trend?)
sat 1920, superscore 1990 (1340/1600)
taking sat2s this nov and december, expecting over 700 on math2 and around 500-600 on bio
5 in ap calc, taking ap physics and ap govt right now
over 100 hours of volunteer work at buddhist temple and around 60-70 at children center</p>

<p>my dad went here for masters, so does that mean i get legacy?
also i wont be requesting financial aid, does that benefit my application in any way?</p>

<p>applying for computer engineering or computer science</p>

<p>I'd say you have a good shot. The fact that you will not be applying for aid will probably enhance your chances since I don't believe Santa Clara is need-blind (I could be wrong). Keep your grades up and write a good essay!</p>

<p>Definitely you have a great opportunity. However, it depends on which school you would apply.</p>

<p>Since my major is ce/cs, wouldn't i be applying to the school of engineering?</p>

<p>is it harder to get into certain schools within scu?</p>

<p>The answer is yes and no. You are judged for that specific program, but I don't think it is much harder. Transferring after admission into the business school is very difficult -- the school is already slightly oversubscribed. My best guess is that this is not the case with engineering, but you should just ask an admissions counselor.</p>

<p>How do you start a thread? Seriously, I've been looking around for the past 10min...</p>

<p>Back up one level so you see all the threads for this forum and look for the button that says "New Thread".</p>

<p>Sorry to spam this topic, but I missed gawdzillah's post about CE/CS. There are three computer oriented majors at Santa Clara: computer science through Arts & Sciences, operations and management information systems through Leavey (Business) and computer engineering through Engineering. </p>

<p>What's the difference between them? I don't know! Try this link and searching asking people in the field: Computing</a> at Santa Clara University - Undergraduate Degrees in Computing .</p>

<p>I will most likely apply to computer engineering through the engineering school :x</p>
