Which of these paths is the best to get into comp science

  1. Jan 20, 2012 #1
    Hi, i am from Peru and in march i will graduate with a BS in industrial engineering
    i dislkie I.E and have always wanted to study CS but was dumb and didnt do it.

    i now have the oportunity to study aboard and i have 2 options so far:
    1. apply as a transfer student to get a second BS in CS and then apply for a masters
    2. apply to a masters

    I want to be the very best, i dont care how long it takes. I am the top 1% of my current university in Peru. is it easier to get into a masters program in cs or getting into as a transfer student?

    going the masters way, i am afraid that i will miss out on a lot of fundamental stuff i must know and put in at a disadvantage.

    i know that some unis dont let you have 2 bachelors, but i have a list of the ones that do:

    texas austin
    carnegie mellon
    south carolina

    what ever decition i make i have financial support from my parents.

    what do you guys think?
