Few weeks back I made up my mind that CMU would be the school of my choice. However, I discovered about their Early Admission process couple of days back and since have been pondering hard. Being a junior, my current stats read:
- GPA: 3.8 unweighted (4.5 weighted)
- AP World History 3 (sophomore year)
- AP Comp. Science 5(freshman year)
Currently taking AP US History, AP Eng 11 and AP Psychology.
I am scheduled to take the December 6th SAT and am expecting 1300-1400 range.
* Won 1st place in regional Science Olympiad "Search the Web" contest in 8th grade (not sure if it's much to "brag" about;)
* Writer for official school newspaper
* Founder & Editor of a NEW school newspaper (now "competing" with the legacy school newspaper)
* Founded a design firm in my freshman year of HS. First year revenue was in $15,000-$20,000 range. Since, it has only gone up.
What do you think as far as my chances go for early admission at CMU School of Design?
My design portfolio, I am quite confident, will be impressive as I have done 100s of original designs in past two years for REAL-WORLD clients. And secondly, designing is something which really intrigues me and the design program at CMU seems ideal. I intend to do double-major in Communications Design and Human-Computer Interaction.
Bring in your thoughts-- much appreciated

By the way, am out of state. Not sure about how much that matters. Would be interesting if someone could shed some light on it.
Also, I won't be proactively seeking financial assistance as far as scholarships go.

Which school of CMU are you planning on applying to?
The Fine Arts School?
There isn't a school of just design.
Good luck is all I can say, and I think they require an audition.

School of Design comes under the School of Fine Arts at CMU.
They have *optional* audition which is basically going over the portfoloio. As I stated, my portfolio will carry some weight due to the works that I have done in the past couple of years pertaining to the area of design.
Keep your thoughts coming in.

Anyone? Doesn't appear like many here know much about Carnegie Mellon or their Design
