Brown University

I’m a sophomore at Brown University and I’m trying to decide whether or not to declare AB or SCB degree in computer science. Do employers view this degree as equal or is having an SCB more helpful in getting a job? Thanks!

      Difficult Interview

      I applied online. The process took 5 months. I interviewed at Brown University (Providence, RI)


      I applied for the position in November, was called to talk to a recruiter just before their three-week Christmas break. I had an hour interview with the person who would be my manager around early February. I was requested to participate in a full day of interviews, meeting everyone in the department in March. I finally received word that I was not being offered the position in April. This was the LONGEST interview process I have ever dealt with, but other than that, everyone seemed nice, and the questions were pretty standard.
