Hi All! I’m starting this thread for students and/or parents who are applying to ASU for Fall 2022 admission. My daughter just applied to ASU (and several other colleges) and she will be applying to Barrett Honors College when the application opens next week. My husband and I actually went to ASU a long, long time ago. He graduated in 1995 (Engineering) and I graduated in 1996 (Psychology).
My S22 has been accepted into computer science for Fall 2022 and will be applying to Barrett.
I am admitted to CS, too. At this time, I don’t know if the honors college is worth to apply. I am not much interested in those extra courses .
7 year Barrett parent here - Son 1 was Chemistry Major; Son 2 is CS major. Feel free to ask me questions.
S2 will graduate in December - already accepted into 4+1 MS program. He will have his MS next December. This is part of what I like about ASU - fairly easy to graduate early or finish a Masters in 4.5 years. Between AP/IB credits and course availability - it can be done.
We live in CA and looked at many CA schools - getting a degree in 4 years was not a given.
That’s great! My daughter has 30 college credits. Mostly dual credit and some AP. She is looking at the ASU Herberger school of art for animation (which looks to be quite new) vs Texas A &M for visualization (which is well established). She has a scholarship to both schools via college board national recognition program. The Barrett’s honor college sounds good. The 4+1 sounds good too!
Congratulations to your sons (and thanks for your service). Did your S2 do any coops or internships? What does he want to do after he completes his masters?
The art of Animation degree might be new, but the school has been around for awhile. If you plan on a visit - contact Barrett Recruiting office - they can set up tours/meetings with professors (covid dependent).
He was awarded a DAAD-RISE research internship in Cologne, Germany (canceled by covid) and just finished a summer internship with Garmin in Chandler, AZ. At this point, he is focused on Machine language, embedded systems and possibly AI. Unclear what the “after graduation” plan is at this point.
Oh yeah - Garmin has already offered him a “graduate” internship next summer.
My daughter just received her acceptance to ASU.
She is working on the essay for the Barrett college application now and will get that application in soon!
Excellent. news - one in hand is nice. Barrett is more competitive than the broader ASU, but if you DD has good grades and ECs, should be a pretty solid candidate. If you have any questions about Barrett, they have great admissions advisors. They are a great resource of the most accurate information. My older son worked there as a student.
