I recently graduated with 2.8 gpa from ucla for civil engineering, now as i am looking into grad school (the original plan of getting a job, anyjob, went out the window after 6 month of applying with no offers)
now I am tempted to make the switch to computer science to do my masters (was planning on switching by my last year of undergrad but counselor said it was too late) so I have a few questions:
would i need to take some undergrad cs classes before i apply or should i get in and work on undergrad core classes then? (also would this affect the grad school applications, such as if i do them and get good grades then admission will favor upon that?)
and which schools offer online masters (i am currently working a full time job so i would prefer online option if possible) that I have a chance of getting into? I was looking into both UCLA and USC, also DePaul (heard about their cs program from a friend)... but which schools should i be looking into with a sub 3.0 gpa?
thanks in advance for all the help, also any additional information you guys can give would be greatly appreciated!
