I really like LA but I have to convince me and my parents that I'm not going there just for the place and that the school is also worth it. So I really want to go to California State Univeristy, Northridge and major in Comp. Sci. but somethings are holding me back:</p>
<p>1) It's a state university, everyone around me has no respect for it so how will I manage after college? Will I have better employment prospects from a UC or other college?
2) Comp. Sci..hmm...with outsourcing and all, aren't software engineers screwed?
3) Is CSUN a good school to consider for its general academic/atmosphere/social life? For my major?</p>
<p>Please try and answer all or some of my concerns..especially about CSUN in specific.</p>
