A Second Chance At My Tech Dreams

One of my best friends, who went to same undergrad as me had gone to law school, and then he became a lawyer. He did not enjoy being a lawyer at all. And he was looking for something else to do. He considered different options like an MBA. He also discovered Columbia’s Post-baccalaureate. He ended up getting into that and doing a Masters in CS (Computer Science).

He was a mentor and friend to me and he told me, “Danny, since you are looking for something new in your life as well, you should consider doing this great post-bac program at Columbia, and get into software engineering.”

And that was kind of how I moved to New York and started studying at Columbia.
