Hey guys. I am a senior in HS right now, and I am applying to colleges for computer science.
GPA - 4.0 Weighted (my school doesn’t do unweighted)
SAT - wasn’t able to take bc of COVID
EC’s/Awards - 4 leadership positions at school, dancing for 10 years, python/java tutor, girls who code mentor, kumon tutor, Princeton University writing contest winner, Biomedical internship at Rutgers NJMS, Computer Science internship with Goldman Sachs
I feel like my GPA and Extra curricular’s are fine, but I am just sad about the SAT part.
I currently have 8 colleges on my list:
Rutgers - in state, close to home, cheap, amazing CS program, close to NYC
NJIT - safety school
Stevens Institute of Technology - close to home, they give scholarships, great job placement, great return on investment
Northeastern University - family in Boston, good distance from home, kind of expensive, great engineering/CS, lot of co-ops and internships
NYU - dream school, pretty close to home, VERY expensive
Georgia Tech - amazing school, very hard to get into OOS
UMich - great academics and rankings, amazing CS and engineering, far from home, kind of expensive
Cornell - reach school, high acceptance for women in CS/engineering, Ivy League
Please let me know if there are any good CS target colleges I can apply to, or if you think my list is good/bad and my stats and EC’s are enough.
Thanks a lot!
