I got rejected?

My GPA is average (3.57 weighted ). 1280 SAT and 21 ACT. I applied for mechanical engineering(BS+MS) while I got a C in physics. I know my chances are low, but should I appeal?

    I think you need a good reason to appeal your application. I remember on the school website, it has a page tells you in what case you can appeal.

    In order to appeal, you have to have new information or some information they have has to be wrong. For the last 2 years, they have been waitlisting the top rejections. So if you were rejected outright, you are below everyone who was waitlisted in priority. So I would say it wouldn't be worth it to try, unless you have some new information to share with them. Sorry, BCOE is super competitive these days and it takes a lot more to get in than it used to.
