Should I major in Comp Sci w/ low math skills?
Hi there. I'm 22, male, and am considering majoring in (in order of most desired): Computer Science (Calc 2 highest), Finance (Survey of Calc highest), Communication (no math).
My background: finished Algebra 1.5 in Sophomore year of high school. Dropped out in Junior year and got GED immediately. Geometry was main reason for dropping out (stupid, I know). I finished my Sophomore year's Algebra 1.5 with a C. I never studied. Just did homework and tests. I got 540 of 800 on my GED in Math, without studying.
Now, I'm a bit more mature and - maybe too late - am realizing the importance of math and studying. I am pretty good with computers. I'm the one people go to for advice and troubleshooting. I have experience with both PC and Mac. It's all mostly basic. When I was twelve, I was able to design websites in HTML. I never got into Java, C++, Basic, or anything like that. I put together my own quad-core PC half a year ago, but did require a bit of help, as I'd not grounded the motherboard properly.
Here is my university's info for "getting started" in Comp Sci major: http://coen.boisestate.edu/cs/files/...started_CS.pdf
As for finance, I'm just really good with money. I make projected spending plans for every major purchase, my monthly expenses, etc. And I enjoy doing it. As much as I do working with computers.
So I'm wondering, if I study, maybe I'll be able to get B's in Calc 2. MAYBE. If not, most likely Surv of Calc for Finance. Not too excited about Communication, as it seems computers may be taking the places of some of the careers you can work with a degree in Communication.
Any advice? Techniques? Blunt truths?
Thanks in advance!
