I qualify for Academic Admission from what I am seeing.
Required Coursework Check
(1380, required is 1360)
Class Rank Check
(My class rank is 20%, within the 25% required)
I know that I barely qualify for Academic Admit because my SAT is just 20 points above the required.
Total score of at least a 1360 with at least:
620 Math; and
660 Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW)
I have 690 Math (70 points above required) and 690 Reading (30 points above required). However, my SAT score is pretty much irrelevant as I intend to take it again (in order to qualify for National Merit Finalist, I believe my low SAT score to be just a bad day).
I understand that Academic Admit does not necessarily mean I will get into my Major (which I intend to have as engineering). However, I have heard conflicting views that
A)Majors are given out on a first-come first-serve basis, and that Academic Admits receive any major they want (an engineering student at A&M told me that).
B)Academic Admits have to compete with everyone else for a major, regardless of early admission.
Which one of those two is the correct one?
