UPenn SEAS, Columbia SEAS, CMU SCS

<p>In what order would you attend these schools for computer science?</p>

<p>In what order would you attend these schools for CS but with a full scholarship at CMU SCS and a 10k financial aid package for the ivies?</p>

<p>I think a lot has to do with what you want out of the classroom.. obviously, out of those 3, CMU has the strongest CS department. So if you're looking for pure academics, that's the way to go..</p>

<p>Again, if your fin aid at CMU a full scholarship, it's pretty hard to turn that down.. You'll graduate with a 70k+ job most likely, and have no debt.. no too bad!</p>

<p>however, I chose SEAS over CMU SCS for a variety of non-academic reasons (and some academic..).. Penn has a much more lively and involved campus, and really just suited my personality much better. I also wanted a place where I could have slightly more flexibility in my curriculum, something CMU really didn't offer.. </p>

<p>in money is a concern, or academics takes priority over everything else, then I'd choose CMU.. however, if you're looking for a more rounded college experience, i'd probably go with Penn.. </p>

<p>Hope this helps.. if you have any more questions, feel free to email me :)</p>

<p>Agreed - if you are absolutely sure on doing CS or anything remotely engineering related, go to CMU for the full ride.</p>
