I’m planning on applying to PSU later this year and I had some questions about their admissions process. I have heard that Smeal is significantly harder to get into compared to DUS, so I’m a little worried that if I apply to Smeal over DUS I won’t get in. I was hoping to get some advice towards what I should do given my stats.
For reference, I have a 3.0 unweighted GPA and a 3.19 weighted GPA with no real trend. I got a 2010 on the old SAT (660W 680CR 670M). I also have decent extracurriculars.
Also, if I were to get into Smeal I was wondering what the benefits would be over DUS.
Thanks in advance!
