Texas A&M vs. UT Dallas for Computer Science - URGENTLY NEED ASSISTANCE

CEOSandeepCEOSandeep Registered User Posts: 113 Junior Member
Hi,
I'm a senior and I have less than three days left to decide what college. It's between Texas A&M computer science vs. UT Dallas. I'm in-state and have received a $6k per year scholarship from UT Dallas but no scholarship from A&M. I heard that Texas A&M has better corporate partners, higher salaries, and an overall better ranking. However, I'm not sure if the people are nice there or if it's worth more tuition money.

If you had to choose, where would you go?

Thanks and all help is appreciated.

    Did you decide on where you wanted to go yet? The 6K adds up to 24K over time , but you also got to factor in the fact that UTD is more expensive than A&M to begin with. I hope you figured it out and give us an update! Good luck !

    A&M will give you more of the college experience while UTD feels more like a commuter school. A&M does have a better overall reputation but UTD is a great school for computer science. Like stated UTD is more expensive so you need to check and see if that 6k a year is going to make up the difference. If they are a wash it really depends on what kind of college experience you want. A&M has sports teams and is rich in tradition. UTD is much smaller and more laid back. No sports teams to follow and little tradition. We would really need to know what kind of college experience you are wanting to be able to offer you any concrete advice.
