CS major tech heavy curriculum focus with limited Gen Eds
Not sure how exactly to ask this question...
Looking for early ideas for my 9th grade son regarding the type of college that might be best for him.
He is likely to have pretty high stats, but minimal ECs, possibly might be a national merit semi-finalist at least, 4.0 GPA etc.
He wants to major in computer science with probably a minor or double major with math. He said he's not interested in engineering.
Wants a tech heavy curriculum that doesn't require foreign language or many general education courses. (Even though he may have APs that fulfill requirements.)
Is a technical college (RIT, RPI, WPI, NJIT) a much better fit than a university or LAC?
He has no interest in studying things outside his major if possible. (Also on Asperger's spectrum).
I think a smaller sized college is better for him than a big state university...
Prefer a college in the Northeast or near where we live (Delaware, Univ of MD, etc)
