    @bouders (#17) and @Bobby72 (#27), this link will take you to current information about direct admission to CS at the University of Washington:

    Thanks @UWfromCA Sounds like a good move. Students and parents will feel more confident committing to UW with direct admission.

    I generally don't recommend University of Toronto for students who are set on studying CS because of the unpredictability of admission to the major. Students don't find out until after their first year of courses. Hopefully they will go to a direct admission system soon too.

    @ProfessorPlum168 Thanks very much for these hard facts which changes our perspective and odds. Definitely will need to look beyond the UC's more seriously than we have been so far.

    @aquapt Thanks for such detailed info on Rice. Will be considering that seriously as an ED option.

    @UWfromCA Thanks very much for the link. Direct admits should really become more the norm and hopefully more universities should do that especially for high demand Majors.

    Interesting that Rice has most of the students leave for a year from on campus housing and return for senior year. It just like Boston College in that way. It was really surprising to me when I learned that about the school. To me that says a lot about how much they like being at the school.

    It’s really great they all want to be there for the last year together.

    I wonder how many other schools have that pattern.

    For me once you had the apartment going back to a dorm and even a nice and roomy one would not been in the cards. Totally different experience.
