Computer Science Teacher - Had him for 2 years 3 classes. Math and 2 cs classes.
Teacher recs should be excellent.</p>

<p>I was hoping to apply to SCS or H&SS ED2 and do a dual major in (CS/CE) and Econ.</p>

<p>Chance me!</p>

<p>Shameless self bump.</p>

<p>Bump! Again…</p>

<p>More Bumps!</p>

<p>To be honest and I hate to say this to you, but I really have no idea whether you will get in. Without an SAT, as an asian male with a 3.55, taking the Chinese SAT II, with great ECs, I wouldn’t be a tad surprised by an acceptance or a rejection. I know this is not what you want to hear (with all your bumps) but I honestly have no clue.</p>

<p>Sorry – directions for SCS say you need Math plus Physics or Chem Sat II.</p>

<p>The 3.55 is far too low – especially for an Asian Male.</p>

<p>Apply to HSS.</p>

SCS says
“SAT Subject Tests (2)
Math Level I or II
Physics, Chemistry or Biology”
[Admission</a> > Academic Requirements](<a href=“Home - Computing Services - Office of the CIO - Carnegie Mellon University”>Home - Computing Services - Office of the CIO - Carnegie Mellon University)</p>

<p>Which better be true as I only took the MathII and Biology-E</p>

<p>Footnote # 4
Only junior or senior tests accepted.
When did you take the bio test-- usually 9th grade or 10-- so it won’t fly.</p>

<p>I guess I got lucky. I waited until junior year to take all of my standardized tests.</p>
