...that colleges base their admissions partly on what major you pick?

well, im not sure if the base their decision on it but i am sure that some majors are alot more competitive at colleges. i.e. BME at Hopkins, Chemical Engineering at Univ. of Del., Buisness at Penn State

It depends on the college. For some colleges, absolutely not. For some colleges, definitely, and there "impacted" majors.

There's no quick way to get a handle on this. You need to research every college that you're interested in. I'd suggest you start by going to the Admissions page of the college website. Reading FAQ pages is also often useful.
