  3. Completion of the graduate entrance writing requirement;
  4. A statement of purpose from the student; and
  5. Either A or B below:
    1. A baccalaureate degree in computer science;
    2. A baccalaureate degree in a related field with a cumulative grade point average of "B" (3.0) or better with no grade lower than "C+" (2.3) in a selection of program preparatory courses including:
      1. The equivalent of a one-year sequence of "Introduction to Computer Science" courses, as defined by the ACM Cur- riculum Committee as courses CS1 and CS2. This can be satisfied by the successful completion of:
