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.
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.
