How competitive is UM political science program and how hard is it to transfer 2 Ross

<p>I was wondering how competitive is it to get into the political science program (OOS), do alot of people do it and is it a impacted major?
and how hard is it to transfer to Ross for marketing? is it hard to switch from polysci to marketing.</p>

<p>thank you for all the help in advance</p>

<p>You don't apply to a department, you apply to LSA and then pick whichever major you want. A lot of people major in PoliSci. I don't know what you mean by an "impacted major". You don't apply to Ross for a specific emphasis. While in Ross, you can take 3 MKT classes and are considered to have an emphasis. You can take as many classes beyond the required one MKT class as you can fit into your time at Ross. Once again, you do not "switch from [PoliSci] to marketing". You transfer from LSA to Ross. It is somewhat difficult (based on acceptance rate), but very doable if you put forth the effort.</p>

<p>Thanks alot giants92.</p>

<p>i was just looking at the Common App UMich supplement and saw that after selected the college/school (LSA) one has to select his/her area of intrest. I was wondering would it be harder for me to get into UMich or easier if i select the major of political science, if it was"impacted".</p>

<p>Michigan has no "impacted" major.</p>

<p>I still have no idea what you mean about an "impacted" major. Wisdom teeth are impacted, not majors. I honestly do not know how influential your stated choice of major is on your chance of being accepted. But it's only that: a stated choice. You don't need to commit to anything until you come to campus.</p>

<p>According to google an impacted major is when there are more applicants to the program than spots. Since you don't apply to be in poli sci, anyone can declare it, it would not be considered impacted.</p>

<p>Learn something new every day.</p>

<p>I guess what im trying to say is do alot of people put down political science as his/her areas of interest. and if they do, does getting into Michigan become more competitive than it already is?</p>

<p>It looks like you are going to have to ask admissions. Is there not an undeclared option?</p>
