I won't disagree with you there but it's almost over so I don't care anymore.

It would be SIGNIFICANTLY faster if I had a car, but I can't drive and I highly doubt I could afford a car (initial cost, upkeep, and insurance). As for going to a different school, this one gave me the most money to attend so I thought it would be the financially responsible choice for my future.

On the bright side, I can operate on less sleep for longer than most people could with a decent nights rest. It took a bit to get that way but I find that it gives me an edge when I have large, time consuming projects to work on.

Math requirements seem to vary wildly by school. At my school cs majors had to take 3 calculus classes (differential, integral, multivariable,) diff eq, statistics, linear algebra, discrete, combinatorics... I also took a numerical computing class which was a math class with some programming assignments. Covered things like splines and eigenvalue problems.

Some schools seem to really skimp on the math, which is not a good thing in my opinion.

I've got Calc 2, Physics 1, and C#.

I'm kinda worried about Calc 2 because I hear it's the hardest, but I did really good in Calc so hopefully it won't be too bad.

Stupid question: How different is C# from C++? My school's intro to programming class is in C++, so I know a little bit of it, but to get into any of the more advanced programming classes I need to take this C# one.
>>
>>43144366

3-4 classes during one semester at my school is 15-18 credits. Anymore than that, and it's almost impossible for the schedule to work. I know a dude who said he took 24 units last year. He managed to pass most of his classes, but he was constantly late and his GPA went to shit because C- is passing.

I need to keep my 4.0 so I can be competitive and get into a not shit shit school.

where my part-time bros at ?

>tfw working 40 hours a week
>>
>>43152287
it's almost impossible that he's being truthful, if his school is similar to american universities.

i go to purdue and they dont even let us take more than 18 credits each semester.
>>
>>43152756
Oh really? So I guess this class won't be too difficult then. They'll probably expect us to know basic programming shit like arrays and functions, and other stuff we learned in the intro class we're required to take, but I'll bet my ass that most people won't remember simple shit like that. The first couple assignments will probably be easy review shit.
>>
>>43152852

> Tfw non-lawyers think 40 hours a week is full-time.

Try 60-70.
>>
>>43152881
Yeah it's an American Community College, and that dude is kinda a bullshitter. I'm kinda inclined to believe him though, because our school is the type that will let you sign up for as many classes as you want. As long as you pay up, they don't care how hard you fuck yourself taking too many classes or ones that don't matter.
>>
>>43152921
>implying i said it was a full week

12 credits + 40 hours is pretty hefty m8. i barely have time to shitpost on /g/
>>
>>43152903
Just remember to go into the class with an open mind, don't be one of those douches who thinks they know everything and has an ego. I TA'd a class and saw too many kids like that outright fail.

Why would you do this? Do you enjoy being a lawyer that much?

how often do those classes meet? i cant imagine them not overlapping
>>
>>43152954

That is easy shit. Hard is 90-110 hours.
>>
>>43152969
typically when people describe 60-70 hours of a non factory job, they're adding the hours where they sit in their office and browse /g/ and shitpost all day.

i worked at a TTD programming office and most of my day was spent waiting around for assignments, but i clocked 85 hours some weeks.
>>
>>43152963
>Just remember to go into the class with an open mind, don't be one of those douches who thinks they know everything and has an ego.

I'm probably the exact opposite of that guy. I'm not very creative or great at programming, and I'm actually thinking of getting out of CS because I think I lack the coding talent to be great at it. The only reason I got an A in my last programming class was that I'm good at learning languages.

There's also only one of them, meaning the s at the end doesn't indicate plurality. You don't say you went to the gymm, you have psychy 101, or you got western civn.

* note that it's an ambiguous area of english whether to treat mass nouns as plural or singular, so different versions of english have solved the problem differently.

I'm taking history, spreadsheets, business math, and personal finance because I am not a CS major. Also, I'm not taking many classes because I took a bunch in the summer, so I'm going to spend my spare time learning about data science.

no it isn't. you're thinking of student loans. financial aid is a government subsidy for poor people when they go to college (the good kind of welfare). There might be some programs that offer some loans at a steeply discounted rate, though. But for the most part it's free money.

Pretty much all of our core classes were packed into the first two years, starting my third year this fall. After this semester, I don't have a single class that isn't related to CS left.
>>
I'm taking:
Stars, Galaxies and Cosmology
Communication in Technology (required class, not looking forward to it)
Java Programming I
Introduction to SQL
C/C++ Programming I
Composition I (also not looking forward to)

I already know java pretty well, and know the basics of C++. I am mainly taking java in case there are things that aren't covered (and to boost my gpa), and c++ is the programming class most of the upper level comp sci classes have as a prerequisite. I won't have to take any pure math classes because I went through BC calculus in high school and know enough to pass all of the math prerequisite tests.

It is my first semester but I don't see the issue with taking 6 classes. It is just 50 minutes per class twice a week. Even with homework it should still take less time/day than high school. I am looking forward to (hopefully) not having to spend almost 10 hours a day in/getting ready for school with most of that time being wasted, and then spend even more time at home doing pointless projects. The only hard part of high school is dealing with the bullshit.

An animation course that'll take four years and take me through both 2D and 3D animation.

If you like being artsy/design-y in the tech world this seems like the only thing you can do. The market's already flooded with web designers and the like and Animation is extremely popular in Canada for some reason. Everyone else I've met in this program got a job within weeks after graduating, including a friend of mine.

Worse case I just get a bank loan ontop of the freebie one you get in Canada for school that you don't pay for until you are no longer a student, live like a student for another four years and go for software engineering ontop of that.

Then enjoy my crippling debt that'll be equal to most Americans once they're done school due to the inclusion of the bank loan.
