DescriptionComputer Science BS in 3 years
CommentsI went to RPI for 2 reasons: 1) they had computers everywhere, and 2) they gave me a decent scholarship. It was probably the best choice I could've made. I had free access to lots of very good hardware, and met interesting people to do projects with.

I graduated a year early with a Computer Science BS, and minors in Music, Media Arts, and Psychology. Most of my computer science electives were filled with graduate level courses. The two remaining Master's degree courses were parallel programming and network security. I was tempted to sign up for a fourth year, but felt that I had already covered those subjects through a summer job porting a parallel application, and personal exploration of the school network.
