I am in my senior year of high school, and now, in the first week, is when its time to plan for my future. I have been in love with the field of computers and such scince i was six. It comes a time now, i'm in Computer Science 2 in the study of C++, and although it seems complicated and large, i feel that scince i enjoy giving to others, such as programs, help, etc, that this could be an excellent career. And the possibilities of pay and expansion are endless.
I have the opportunity to apply for a "Technical computer and science related" scholarship for $10,000.00, and i am wondering if i should take it.
It seems to be in the general opinion that CS college courses suck, but this would allow me my degree in CS and allow me to take other fields as well.
So, is the Degree worth it? I feel that it is but i really would like an opinion.
Does your opinion change if i have to pay for it myself?
