Transferring to a university after my gen eds are done at my current community college.
I now have two options, I wanted to major in compsci and go to school in state in IL.
My first option is to just go to uni here, and rack up probably 50k in loans.
My second option is to take ASU's online software engineering degree for free.
the main thing im worried about is how online programs are looked down upon, although my diploma wouldnt have any mention of it being online
also the availability and possible difficulty in finding internships
online is garbage and no one will respect you or your degree.
do normal uni. apply for financial aid, federal work study, scholarships, etc. Be frugal. There are lots of scholarships for community college transfers. I got a 5000 dollar one for just having above a 3.0. Make connections with people to increase chances of jobs later. Get a job during school and use money to pay loans.
id say im intermediate with java/sql
keep in mind ive just finished my gen eds, so my programming classes are still coming up
but curious as to why you have such a strong opinion about it
>have you ever spoken spanish before or worked with people who spoke spanish? If not theres no reason to study spanish.
I dont get it
>have you ever spoken spanish before or worked with people who spoke spanish? If not theres no reason to study spanish
A better analogy would be that you learn spanish from people legitimately speak in an environment that promotes your real growth as you'd see how it is use in a real life setting. After learning it well enough that your growth begins to stagnate, you go to a local college for some formal classes, maybe pick up a few spanish books along the way, then you certify yourself in spanish, go to your employer then get a raise for being such a valuable asset to your company.
What's going to happen is that you'll go to a mediocre program, learn a bit of java and a lot of "theory" and history. Be there 4 years while the IRL tech passes you up, then once you come out you realize that you really don't know much of the real world then turn to the resources online that you could've gotten 4 years earlier for free or on the cheap.
I've taught myself java and sql for my own enjoyment, not sure what youre getting at desu. Don't take anything im saying as rude or arguing, i sincerely just dont understand.
People are practically ensured jobs, as long as theyre able to keep up with the tech growth.
