            One of the best colleges for computer science research

            Quality of education in computer science department is really good.Professors have great knowledge and really approachable.I learned a lot after attending the graduate program and will be learning too.Maybe location is little drawback, leading to its little low ranking.

            2005-2009, BA

            UNM gave me a chance

            Cost was something that outweighed all other factors when it came to college for me. I had made a deal with my parents that they would get me a car and I could go wherever I pleased. I chose this over them helping me out to attend the local university in Western Colorado. I really had my heart set on going away for college and the high prices at Colorado and Colorado State left me with limited options, so limited I took a whole year off to figure out what was next. I decided to write letters to the University of Utah, The University of Arizona and New Mexico asking if they could help a girl out and show me some Four Corners love and give me in state tuition. New Mexico is the only one that wrote back. I think that says a lot.
