I got accepted into Baruch and Queens college and I want to major in computer science. I know that both schools have their ups and downs.
I also have some questions about the transferring process since both schools are practically useless when it comes to helping unless I pay my deposit. I went on my degree works “transfer what ifs” and saw that there was a long list of credits I need to take for both schools.
For queens, do I really need to take 2 lit, 2 languages, 2 science, 2 additional and 2 writing courses just to fulfill the college option?
for Baruch, do I really need to take 4 college options, 8 pre-business, and 8 business classes?
I feel like all of this is unnecessary as a transfer because…how am I suppose to finish all of this in the remaining years plus my major credits?
When it comes to choosing the right school, I feel like Baruch has a good connection with a lot of businesses when I come out of college and a big support group. Also if I were to switch my major midway, there would be so many other majors I may be interested in.
For Queens, they have a better computer science program and they base their program solely on cs instead of business so that would be my focus.
I am transferring from John Jay college so all the credits are all over the place for both schools because, for some reason, their credits and classes are completely different.
I am looking for a good environment, community, advisors, and to make friends that would allow me to actually want to go to school instead of transferring once again.
