I wanted to do my bachelor's from the best college in the USA, as the course which I wanted to do needed good guidance. I found Wofford college, while I was in search of the best computer science universities. I applied without thinking twice because the placement rate of this college was very good. The application fee paid by was $35.
My course for BSc cs Included programming language, discrete mathematics, algorithm analysis in the very first year. What I liked more about my college is the level of strictness they have maintained while preparing the overall course.
One day when I was collecting my documents I saw my dad's university documents. I came to know that he was a Wofford College alumnus. So after completing my high school I applied online for the same college. And luckily I was selected. I fulfilled the requirements of the college and I got the admission in the course.
It's very entertaining and engaging to me. I didn't expect to understand everything I am learning and enjoy it that much. We also have some debates in the classrooms regarding various topics.
I fell in love with the campus! Didn't need SAT, applied to 10 schools, felt comfortable, received scholarship money. I took academically rigorous classes throughout highschool with lots of APs and dual enrollment so I knew I could handle a smaller more intense environment. Graduated top in class. No application fees since I toured.
