I was a business student for my first two years of undergrad but then switched to computer science. I took classes over the summer before my junior year at another school. During my junior year (which I am in now) I am/have taken 7 CS/upper level math courses. During the summer I am doing research and taking non-cs/(core classes for my undergrad curriculum) so that I can take only CS classes senior year. Fall semester of senior year I plan on doing an undergraduate thesis class and take two grad classes, along with another course.

How bad is it for my application if I only have my junior year and first semester of senior year for the admissions committee to review.

I have pretty good grades in my cs/math classes post sophomore year (A's/A-). I plan on having two good recs at least. My main concern is the lack of semesters for the admissions committee to judge me on.

  • you might want to define which country you are referring to (I assume it's the US), but just add a tag or similar reference – Chris Mar 14 '16 at 2:35

The first two years of undergrad in the US are mostly general education classes anyway, so I wouldn't worry about it. It is common to switch majors.

You seem like you are in great standings. You've taken a fair number of CS classes, received good grades, and will have two good letters. On top of that you'll have research experience and plan to take a few graduate courses.

From the little info you've provided, you seem like you are well on track!
