I’m thinking of going to UofH. I have a gpa of 4.6 weighted. I am a high school sophomore, so I have time to worry about college. I live in Houston, Texas so I was wondering if it is a good idea to take advantage of Dual Credit courses such as US History and English, since that’s what my high school provides.
Background: I want to major in Computer Science. I know UofH isn’t famous for its compsci program, but if I stay in the city, I wouldn’t have to worry about housing, dorms, tuition (since it’s not that expensive anyway), and I have contacts that can get me a job related to my major. I also have an internship ready for my senoir year on high school.
UofH is not my first choice, I want to try and get into Rice, but UofH is a more realistic plan.
If I can get some personal feedback, I would very much appreciate it, as I don’t really know what I’m supposed to do.
