I have recently done a semester at Umass Lowell as a Computer Science Major. I applied as a transfer to Umass Amherst and was accepted though it was as a Economics major. The two curriculums of the schools are uncommon(Lowell teaches C programming whereas Amherst Java). If I go to Amherst, in order to get into the CS major I need to score a B+ in two of the CS classes. Is it worth the risk to go to Amherst for the better name and college life? Am I better of staying at Lowell or challenging myself at Amherst, the better named school?
