You have a chemical engineering major who is at the top of his major with a 2.7 GPA. Getting a C+ in a class is hard. He took Calc 5, Physics 3, Econometric's, ect.
You have a Communication major who has a 3.7 GPA. If you don't get a B+ in a class you're mentally retarded. He took Communications 101, Interpersonal Communication.
The communication major scores a 165, the engineering major scores a 175. The communication major gets into Cornell. The engineering major would be lucky to break >30.
Explain to me how this makes sense? I would like to hear some non liberal arts majors too.
at 165, comm major isn't getting into cornell. at 167, maybe. and cornell definitely does make exceptions for hard majors/minors. and yeah, chem engineering is hard, but not that hard. (i'm biochem/finances, and i've taken chem-e classes). the comm major still has to study; these engineers should manage less than a 1.0 difference.
not that i'm one to talk, but why is a chem-e going to law school?
Perhaps the same reason the comm major is going to law school? Just because a chem-e can find work that pays somewhat well doesn't mean they shouldn't go....just like a comm major SHOULDN'T go just because they don't know what to do with their degree
