(blueskies).  I am not asking for leniency, rather I am inquiring about how adcoms view different majors when considering applicants for admission.

comotellamas, I did not put "difficult" in quotations to mitigate its effect.  I put "difficult" in quotations to express a notion that is generally agreed upon.  For example, while some opinions may contrast, I think the majority of people would agree that Electrical Engineering is a more difficult major (GPA wise and course-content wise) than Women's & Gender Studies.

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to know what your opinions were on whether or not certain majors are given more leniency GPA-wise in the application process.  Notice that this is different from the age-old question "are certain majors (political science, etc) given preference?"

How, pray tell, is it different? It's pretty much the same obnoxious question seeking validation.


It may be an obnoxious question, but it is one that I have yet to see asked.  Being a science major myself I was curious.  Therefore, I decided to seek an answer (or rather an opinion).

I am not, I repeat, NOT seeking validation or trying to feel any better about my chances, as I am currently sitting on a 3.96...the fruits of studying a major one truly enjoys.

As far as how the schools would weigh descrepencies between majors if this were the case, I have no idea as to a method.  I'm not on an adcom.  I simply meant that it would make sense if they did.  But if not, whatever.

Thanks for your responses.

For example, do some/most schools look more favorably upon a 3.5 engineering gpa as compared to a 3.5 humanities gpa?

I am a biology major myself and I am simply curious, as I have no idea one way or the other...though from an objective point of view it would seem only logical to me to weight some majors differently.

Thanks
