which matters more for CAL

<p>so now that we are less than 2 weeks away from the decisions, what do you guys think matters more for Cal - SAT or grades...especially for an in-state engineering major</p>

<p>i think that grades would matter simply because the SAT is one test versus 2 years, but i could be (and mostly am) wrong</p>

<p>hopefully you are right..my grades r reallly high..my SAT is okay..</p>

<p>However, the past is in the past. Don't worry about it and just pray to whatever god you believe in.</p>

<p>yea my gpa was a 4.3 and i had a 1950 SAT so i guess we shall see in the coming days.</p>

<p>yea 4.6, 2090 SAT. hopefully they weight the grades more.</p>

<p>Grades of course. Again, look at the common data set:</p>

<p>GPA is "very important," whereas standardized test scores are just "important."</p>

<p>However, high test scores tend to be very common for those accepted to engineering.</p>

<p>By the way, it's Cal, not CAL.</p>

<p>It's CAL if you're really excited about it. ;)</p>

<p>Go Bears!!!</p>

<p>I'd have to say grades matter more, though SAT follows closely behind.</p>

<p>Grades. Many of my fellow EECS majors don't necessarily have the highest SAT scores (say, 2300+ combined), but this is mostly due to the verbal and writing portions. Of course, a solid math background is necessary for any engineering discipline.</p>
