Computer science degrees are the new business degrees.
They are the degrees for people who have NO CLUE about what they want to do with their lives, but they think they can make a lot of money with it. People just assume that they can all get hired with some nerdy small programming start up and get rich.
And ironically enough Business Degrees are the new CS degrees. People for the past 10 years were told not to touch business at all because it was over saturated. Everyone ended up going into Engineering and CS and now at least in my country there is a shortage of business graduates.
Too bad all the people who think they can turn on their Facebook machine means they can do computer science. Only they get blown the fuck by the huge math requirements. The drop out rate for CS is huge
In mean, you'd have a better argument if half the people who started computer science degrees didn't switch to things such as business once they realized they can't handle programming. It's still an autistic major that requires a certain way of thinking that lots of normalfags can't get.
Originally when I got into college I was told to do it just because I say on a computer all day. At first the beginning was easy then I was overwhelmed with math eventually. However the more I actually sat down and took the time to read about what computer science actually was I wanted to learn it. Hell once I realized how comfy the math and programming can be I didn't care about money anymore. I just want to have a comfy job and stop being a wageslave.

I know a guy with a BS in CompSci that started around 60k with a startup. Live in the right place and you can do this.
>tfw I graduated with my CS degree in 2012 before the over-saturation began
>tfw making $111K
>tfw I still live with my parents so no expenses
>tfw no friends
>tfw no gf
>tfw sick right now ;_;
Became a CS Major because 1. person I love would have been one if not an hero 2. enjoy computers but not enough skillz and need formal training 3. disgruntled english major, wanted the antithesis and to get out of my comfort zone 4. CS is where all the cool mentally disturbed people are
There's a shortage of GOOD software developers. Most of these guys who go through CS / SE becasue they have "no idea what they wanna do" and "wanna make money" end up learning barely anything and have a hard time because they write shit code.
In cs class
Entire campus in cs class
Literally all brown and Asian people
The odds are looking dim, all my friends went to trades and make money
I'm competing with poo in loos for jobs
Cs was good around 2000-2008 during the iPhone and app boom, now cs is the "I'm a retard late bloomer" badge
Problem with cs is the amount of bullshit modules on hardware and networks and shit and not enough programming. I work as a mechanical engineer and most employers want someone to make excel VBA macros to increase productivity.
>1/3 of class are female
>half of them are qt
>not even a single nigger in class
I never understood that. Not too many women in physics, engineering, chemistry, or computer science, yet mathematics and biology both have higher numbers of women. Actually, biology might have more women than men in my school
>brother is of mediocre intelligence
>takes a java class in high school
>decides he wants a CS degree
>advise him not to do that, because it's a lot of hard work, he's a party/raver, and I saw my roommates work on that shit for hours at a time
>disregards me, sad NEET drowning in debt that I am
>takes out a bunch of loans
>barely finishes his freshman year with a shitty GPA, doesn't understand the entry level material
>drops out first quarter of sophomore year
>comes back for third quarter
>drops out AGAIN
>paying full price for tuition each time, for no credits
>continues to do drugs and party all the time
>recently got a job at UPS
You're absolutely right OP.
