    Mathematics was my favorite subject since childhood. And computer science is one of the most demanded courses right now in the world. So when I found a course that covers both the aspects of mathematics and computer science I decided to apply for it. There is no application fee and the application is to be made from the common application portal.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course is very suitable for current market conditions and modern industry requirements. The best thing about the course is that it does not burden the students with unnecessary obsolete topics and learning.

    I applied for 2-3 colleges in the USA and was lucky enough to get selected for all of them. But I wanted to study at Colorado College over other colleges. It is the best university for students who want to pursue teaching as a profession. On the other hand, I want to deepen my understanding of the social, political and economic influences of education systems.

    Course Curriculum :

    Inclusivity, Community building, Collaboration, Experiential learning, Reflexive thinking are some of the core values of the course curriculum. A recommended cumulative GPA of 2.7 and 3.0 in the major is required for better future aspects.

    I got to know about the college through the Questbridge program. I applied through this program and was accepted during the early decision round. It was free of cost to apply. I applied to 24 colleges. I chose this college due to the unique block plan and generous financial aid. My academic background is a STEM-focused student who attended a residential school called the South Carolina Governor's School for Science and Mathematics.

    Exams :

    I opted in for this program as Computer Science is my main interest. My SAT score was 1490. There is no minimum requirement to be accepted. It is a regular Computer Science degree program at a liberal arts college. There are required classes that must be completed such as Computational Thinking, Computer Science 1 and 2, etc.
