in the acceptance letter, it just says that i was accepted to cornell engineering.
it doesn't mention my major (computer science)
is this the same for everyone?

It just mentions engineering on my letter....
"The selection committee in the College of Engineering has approved your application for admission to Cornell University beginning with the fall semester, 2004."

how does the engineering department work?
do just start out as an engineering student and just affiliate with a major as you go along.
or is it pre-determined when you matriculate?

You have to affiliate, usually you apply for affiliation sophmore year.

you're not required to affiliate with major you chose on application?

No, but you had to express interest in a major to apply to the college. You are free to change majors before your affiliation deadline, but you must pay careful attention to the course requirements. If you decide in the end the fall semester of your sophomore year that you want to switch majors you have to know what will happen. I decided to switch from CS to MechE. And due to the way the MechE courses are structured, my graduation was pushed forward by one year. Switching that late in the game also proved to be my downfall since I was struggling with CS and continued to struggle with MechE. Since I didn't have another semester to improve my grades, I decided to transfer out. A very frustrating experience but things have turned out great. So the lesson is if you want to switch majors, do it early in the game.

i have already decided that i want chemical and biomolecular engineering.
do i have to contact cornell and tell them i want to change, or do they not keep track of this until you affiliate?
