Hello All,

I am looking to enter a Computer Science program soon. I plan on attending Community College for the first two years before transferring out. As things are now, I do not think that transferring out of state will be an option in 2 years.

What are some of the better Computer Science programs that I should be aiming towards? So far, I've been looking at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and Rutgers as two good options. Any other schools I should be aiming for? (keeping in mind that Ivy league schools like Princeton might be a bit of a stretch for a Community College grad )

Thanks again everyone!

Rutgers is probably best, if you're restricting yourself strictly to New Jersey.

100% of the time, you won't get what you don't ask for.

I know very little about most NJ schools-but I believe you should at least *try* to apply to Princeton. Maybe something surprising will happen-then you'd be attending one of the best universities in the world.

Eligibility | Undergraduate Admission

I was unaware of that-and stand corrected on Princeton. Unfortunate for the OP if he really can't leave his current state. However, it seems like quite a few very high-end schools actually do allow transfer:

Brown:
Transfer Applicants | Undergraduate Admission

Cornell:

Yale:

Columbia:
