Transfer Student Advice Private To Cuny

careerwoescareerwoes Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
Currently on break from school, until spring semester starts in January. Wanted some advice, currently coming from a private college obtained a CIS associates, now thinking about finishing up my bachelors at Cuny College.

I planned on going to a Suny but it made more sense for me to just go for a Cuny in the end. At the moment looking at Lehman, Hunter & City College to finish my bachelors degree.

I was thinking about just going for a cs bachelors but i do not know how that would play out if it would add another 4 years or just plain 2 years depending on the schools curriculum. I was mainly looking at Lehman because they have both CIS and a CS program in BS & BA along with an option to minor in it.

In my mind if the said schools tell me it will take me 4 years instead of two i'll just opt with Lehman and finish up the CIS and think about doing a minor in CS. I was admitted to Rutgers and a few other schools but that out of state cost is no joke for a NY resident, Current GPA 3.19.

Mainly looking to apply before the week is done to the said schools before, December comes which is another week away from now. All I want is some info from people who have insight on the major or who are currently attending the Cuny Schools mentioned above Lehman, Hunter and City College. If you can just give me an honest outlook on the program that i'm interested in from the said three that would be most helpful.
