Please chance me for the following schools with Electrical Engineering or Computer Science as my intended major:
3) UC Berkeley (EECS) *I am in-state
7) Carnegie Mellon
8) UPenn (Jerome Fisher) --just for kicks; my dad graduated from Wharton, so I have legacy
Thanks very much. Since I know these are all very tough schools, I have also applied to other UC's and am hoping they will be safeties, considering I'm in-state. Any suggestions and general advice are greatly appreciated. Thanks again for your time.
