Hi, I read somewhere on Amherst's website that students are required to have '32 credits in the liberal arts curriculum' yet I'm not certain about what that actually means; quick side note, I'll be attending Hamilton College.
Please disregard past threads or past comments from my account; currently, I will be applying to certain transfer schools with better computer science programs in the long-run. I have a wonderful opportunity already at hand and another with a GT for Cornell in what I would like to do but I would like to know this information just in case my priorities change and I end up preferring a smaller LAC for CS.
Hamilton is well regarded and highly ranked and affordable, yet, from what I have heard, seen, and personally experienced, the CS department isn't as strong as I hoped for it to be. With a limited amount of profs and one of the best of the four profs available retiring, it feels as though the CS department is almost non-existent.
I like Amherst because it still has the open curriculum and it's in a relatively more urban environment with a strong CS department and wonderful FA for those with a lower EFC.
Now that I got that off my chest, how should I proceed to attempt to transfer to Amherst? Assuming that I would want to do so? My main concern currently is that I don't really understand by what they mean in regards to the credit system as I'm not really all that familiar with that stuff.
