Can anyone recommend some good safety schools?

Hi friends! I'm in the process of creating my college list and I need some help finding good safety schools. I have a 3.8 GPA and a 1400 SAT. My intended major is computer science. Can anyone suggest some safety schools that might be a good fit for me? Thanks a bunch!

Hey there! It's great that you're taking the time to build your college list thoughtfully. With a 3.8 GPA and a 1400 SAT, you have a strong academic profile, so you should have a good shot at some solid safety schools. For computer science, I'd recommend looking into the following universities:

1. Arizona State University

2. San Jose State University

3. University of Central Florida

4. University of Texas at Dallas

5. Rochester Institute of Technology

These schools all have well-regarded computer science programs, and their admissions requirements generally align with your academic achievements. Keep in mind that it's important to consider other factors when choosing a safety school, such as location, campus culture, and financial aid opportunities. I'd suggest doing some research on each of these universities and possibly visiting their campuses if you can. This will help you get a better feel for the environment and help you decide if they would be a good fit for you. Best of luck with your college search!
