    Son graduated with a BS in CS in '11 and little trouble finding a job in his field. He enjoyed his time at USF and has no regrets going there (he turned down UCSD, UCD, UCSB, Cal Poly, and SCU). I think it's what you make of it - a CS degree from any decent school along with good recommendations and a decent GPA will go a long way in helping you find employment upon graduating.

    why did he choose USF out of all the other schools?

    It turns out we did not qualify for CA in-state residency (it's a long story, but we live overseas and basically have no state which we can claim for tuition purposes) and could not afford the out-of-state costs. USF offered him a generous scholarship and he liked the idea of being in the city.
    What if we had qualified for in-state residency? I don't know - he might have gone to UCSD or some other state school, but we don't think about that now. He may well go to grad school at a UC school.

    Hi sarsfield, I'm about to enroll at USF in a few weeks for the spring semester. I was thinking because of the great location in the city that USF would have a lot of internships and job opportunities for their students, especially in downtown/ financial district in San Francisco. Your post worries me. Could you elaborate on how the job finding process went, and how your son is doing now (for example, does USF continue to help their graduates with job openings)?
