Question by : Which College should I attend! Help me make a decision by May 1!!!?
Please help me chose a college to attend. PLEASE read this and help me decide. Here are my following choices and their descriptions.
First off, I am interested in Computer Science, and the physics (mostly) related to electricity and Electrical/Computer Engineering. I am interested in basically everything in comp sci, including web design, game design, and then all of the other common stuff (software engineering, whatever the common college stuff). Also love math.
-It is Liberal Arts, Which I like, b/c I can study a lot of subjects and make sure comp sci is for me,
hone in on a specific subject in comp sci, and then go to grad school (Probably for
Electrical/Computer Engineering, and probably for free. I think that’s how it works if I am accepted
right?) Sort of a launch school into grad school.
-Small, workshop classes. Will get to know teachers and work with them personally. Also I’ve met
most of them and they are coooool.
-Also going aborad is really stressed, and I LOVE the sound of gloing abroad.
Con: – Doesn’t have classes for Web design, engineering, or game design =/
Price: $ 29,120 (Not including School loans, purely Non-Paybackable Grants)
University of Vermont:
Pro: – Pretty cool size of 10k, but when in your specific classes the class sizes are pretty small.
-Has every single course that I could want, including web design, game design, all other comp sci,
and ENGINEERING, and GOOD ENGINEERING LABS
Con: – Sure I liked Campus, but I don’t have a gut feeling of love for it. I could see myself going there,
but wouldn’t be excited, ya know?
-Not the best school? Reputation wise?
Price: $ 26,385 (Not including School loans, purely Non-Paybackable Grants)
Pro: – Like UVM, it has everything I could want academically
-Co-ops sound interesting and useful in todays market
-Closer to home (northern MA)
– Better Rep?
Con: – I feel that I might get lost in city life, I am definitely a small campus person. Also dorms kind of
suck if you lose lottery
-HUGE class sizes, and going to be mainly lectures. Not personal, may fall behind.
Price: $ 32,952 (Not including School loans, purely Non-Paybackable Grants)
University of Massachusetts Amherst:
Pro: -A lot of friends are going. I guess that’s cool
-I think 16’th best Comp Sci in US… Good for a state School
-Will have all the classes and shit like UVM and NEU, like engineering, etc
-Although large size, campus is not in a city, so most students are on campus, it’s a city in itself
so maybe I wont get lost
Con: -Like 20,000 undergrads? HOLY FUCK.
-Little Fish Big sea?
Price: Don’t have exact number, but its like $ 18,000 (Not including School loans, purely Non-Paybackable Grants) (Also, I went to a private school… so I have to pay tuition.)
If Dickinson had more courses and fit my academic needs more, there would be no question. And if i fell in love with another campus, there would be no question. It is the tear between feel for campus and academics. I have already chosen to decline Holy Cross, Bard, and WPI, so please help me with the rest!.
