UMD vs VT vs UWASH
I was accepted into UMD as a Computer Science major, however, I was also accepted into VT for CS as well as their honors college. I was also accepted into University of Washington, but for Pre-sciences. UWASH said it would be highly unlikely to be admitted into CS later on, but they give me $7000 in scholarships, compared to VT and UMD, which both give me $5000 per year. I am considered out of state for all three, but all three of them place a financial burden on my family. What should I do?7 replies
