My top choice schools are Columbia University, UC Berkley, Cornell, Carnegie Mellon. I have always loved math and computers, but I didn’t realize that I wanted to major in Computer science till this summer. All my ECs and Classes don’t really have anything to do with Computer science or stem. Can I still get into a good college with my declared major? Should I apply undecided?? Would that hurt my chances more though?
Demographics: Asian female in rural/small state.

I know a lot of my activities don’t have to do with stem at all, but I can’t imagine doing anything else. I want to major in computer science and then get a master in cybersecurity.
