Boston University or Bowdoin College?
I decided to start this discussion because I would like to hear your opinions of both Boston University and Bowdoin College. I got accepted to both as a senior in high school. I'm a female and want to major in Computer Science and minor in Biology. I was wondering if you guys knew which school had a better undergraduate Computer Science and Science department overall? Through Bowdoin College I got accepted regular decision and got a substantial amount of aid, but BU is giving me almost a full ride.
For BU I got into the CGS Boston January London Program
which means I do not get to attend the school until the second semester in January. I will be taking courses through the College of General Studies until my Junior year where I will have a guaranteed entrance to the College of Arts and Sciences if I have a minimum of a 2.0 GPA. My major concern is that for the first two years I'm only allowed to take ELECTIVES related to my major (Computer Science) and during my first gap semester I can take all college courses except ones related to my major. I will also spend six weeks in London studying through CGS.
PLEASE HELP I don't know what to do and which school would be a better fit for my major.
