Computer Science Programs for "B" Students

Future programming gurus and tech geniuses often line up for a chance to be accepted at a school like Stanford, Berkeley, MIT, Carnegie Mellon, or Georgia Tech. Unfortunately, students with blemishes on their transcript and imperfect SATs are not going to have much luck making it through the admissions process at these uber-elite institutions. On the positive end, there are a number of CS programs that are happy to take non-straight “A” students and cultivate their talents for four years, eventually sending them to the many of same highly-desirable tech firms as their ultra-selective peers. These include many exceptional publics like Cal Poly, the University of Central Florida, and UNC-Charlotte as well as private institutions like DePauw (Indiana) and Rochester Institute of Technology. For each school we will provide you with an acceptance rate, percent of students in the top 50% of their high school class, as well as middle-50% SAT and ACT data so that you can better assess your personal admissions chances.
