Kutztown University

I earned an Associates Degree in Computer Science from Lehigh Carbon Community College  in May of 2000.  I think I did well graduating with a 3.77.  Could have been a tad bit higher, but I goofed around my last 4 credit course and earned only a C.  I always had plans to go for the Bachelor's, but life went on ... kid, cat, house, hubby, another kid, dog, etc.  Now, with the pressure on to transfer those credits before the ten tear mark lit a fire under my seat.
I applied to Kutztown University!  I checked out the courses for a B.S. in Computer Science - for both the Software Development and Information Technology degrees.  The classes look very interesting.  I hope to hear only good news from the Admission's Office :-)
