Admissions Advice

Help me choose the best college for me CS majors. and compare with respect to value of program difficulty, avg income

GPA- 3.8 ,SAT-1120 (expected 1350+ in 2nd attempt), senior year, (Indian)international student,

I am also applying to UIUC, UCB, etc. for my bachelor's and I have enrolled in a NGO as a " Social Entrepreneurship" intern position but it is free (I will be working for free but surely gain experience). I was prefect in my school and captain of the football team. I am currently also studying for JEE (coaching). I surely have good grades and good amount of extracurriculars but the ones I am interested in was not fully supported in my school (i.e. football, CS, and Maths competitions).

Out of the options you have listed, UMD is the most affordable. This is because the base out-of-state tuition without financial aid (the most likely scenario for international students) is $50,000/year, whereas that figure is around $70,000/year for the other schools. UMD also has one of the top CS programs in the country while also having a higher acceptance rate than some of the other schools on your list. Hope this helps!
