Ana’s Answer

Hi Axel,


From personal experience you should look for Computer Science programs and not necessarily for college. In addition to that, you could attend a well known college/university but attending a local university that has a really good CS program will do the trick and provide you with the skills you need. Ultimately, you have to figure out where do you want to go as far as location. Are you willing to relocate or are you looking for something local or within you state.


I hope this helps.

Ana

Carrie’s Answer

I would also recommend taking into account the types of internships and co-ops affiliated with the school in addition to the college's academic imminence. Access to internships and co-ops will not only help you build your networks, it will give you relevant experience that can help you land the job AFTER college. A colleges program that emphasizes this is going to be invaluable.

Hello - If you're looking for something locally, make sure to check their computer science program and their track record towards helping students get internships.

That will depend on where you are located and if you are planning on moving.  I recommend that you speak with your school counselor about college options.   Here is a list: Carnegie Mellon University, Stanford University, University of California- Berkley; Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  Also always keep in mind your SAT score.  Good Luck !
