How can I increase my chances at Computer Science interships/careers/grad schools
I am currently a rising senior with one semester left at the University of Michigan. I major in biology currently, but last year, I decided to switch from neuroscience to computer science. At the same time, I was still taking biology courses as I decided to also pursue a biology degree. Eventually, I went from pursuing a double major, to bio + a cs minor, to just bio, but now I realized that I was only in bio because I'm good at it. When I pursued computer science, I knew what I wanted to do after college with that. Because I have of financial reasons, I have determined to finish my bio degree next semester, but still pursue a computer science career. What can I do over the next year, both in my final semester and after I graduate, to make my resume look more compelling?1 replies
