Can I get into the Data Science meme without a Masters/PHd in Statistics/Math?

I did a BS in Computer Science, but I ended with a 2.8 GPA overall, so I can't get into any good ones.

Just read the image.
You pretty much just extract tons of data. Analyze it and try to reach meaningful conclusions and use it to make business decisions.

Don't make fun of the person who wrote this for having a lisp.

i dunno, I'm the one who asked if you could with only a BS in Computer Science.

I'm hoping I can work at a string of companies that will teach me the ropes.

What is it that you want to do in big data?

the definition is always changing

idk, whatever I can make 100k+ per year without more than 50 hours per week.

I already do mind numbling boring software development right now. I don't think I could ever truly become passionate in it anyways. I like it enough to come to work everyday and stay on task.
