<p>I want to major in Economics, but I found that the Economics department at CMU is both a part of Tepper and H&SS. From the admissions statistics, Tepper is obviously a harder college to get into than the H&SS college (Admission</a> > Admission Statistics). Quite frankly, I don't think my stats are good enough to get into Tepper, but I think I have a good shot at H&SS. If I write on my app that I'm planning on majoring in Econ, will this hurt my chances of getting in? I'm just confused as to which college they are going to place me in if I get accepted as a prospective Econ major.</p>
