Did you study for your 166 Quant score? If so, I'd think about it again. I know lots of people that had a higher score (and didn't even do MechE) and still struggled with the math. But I still think if you wanna go there your scores are neither a plus nor a minus, they're okay and you're not gonna get filtered out.

I can't speak for MechE, only for Stats, so no helpful information there, besides the point made, sorry. Just wanna make sure you thought about what the lectures are gonna be like there.
