Let's say I'm going to a pretty good official state university, like "University of ___"
I was wondering if Computer Science is a hard major (no matter what I'm not changing)? Is it fun?
I didn't study whatsoever and only took SAT and ACT once each, and I got 1910 (as a junior) and 29 (early senior year) on the first tries. I didn't try to take again, but I assume I could've gotten at least 2000+ and 30+ easily if I did it again, especially if I studied for the science portion. (of course Computer Science is not that kind of science) I got a 32 on the math portion of the ACT.
So I do feel I have the capacity for a Engineering field degree..
I do pretty well in Math I believe, accelerated track since 5th grade.. I took AP Calc AB this year (senior year) and expecting a 5 most likely on it, at least a high 4 at worst
I don't have any prior knowledge of programming, but I'm really motivate once I get into to university this fall, to focus on my classes so much
I'll be taking 20 credits:
6 of which are freshman comp and a seminar, 6 the first year of a foreign language, 4 for Calculus 2...
And 4 for programming 1, my C.Sci class
Next semester I will take 20 credits as well, and two 4 credit classes of programming 2 and discrete structures for C.Sci
