Perhaps someone here can put this matter to rest for me. My high school senior wants to major in CS and he’s seems to have a knack for it (A+ in Intro to CS, and A in AP CS). His 10th-11th UC/CSU GPA is only a 3.6 though because his grades for classes he wasn’t interested in were B’s. He is looking at CSUs as his best fit.
He loves Sacramento State for its beautiful, tree-filled campus and proximity to the state capitol. However, we have heard not-so-great things about Sac State’s CS program and hope that he goes to a more reputable CSU for CS, like Chico or San Jose. He wasn’t impressed by either of those campuses, however. We can afford to send him to any state school here in CA. Does it really matter where you go to college for CS?
