Candidates are evaluated on a variety of criteria, including programming skill, educational/professional background, and culture fit. The weightings for these areas are not set in stone, particularly if you have a strong academic track record. We encourage all aspiring programmers to consider applying to our program; you might just find you have a natural knack and love for coding.
