    I'm taking my first year as a freshmen. Do I still have to take comp. apps, or does computer science cover it?

    I took two courses in C++ as a senior in high school. Now as a freshman in college, I'm finishing up Intro to CS. I have the final for that tomorrow. Next term, I'm taking an intermediate C++ course.

    If you'd like to see all of the classes that I need to take at Drexel to get my BS in CS, you can go here:

    I am finishing up my first semester of computer science now; I'll be taking another computer science course next semester. In concepts, I 've learned virtually nil so far; but I have learned the syntax of Java and learned just how boring the programs you write in computer science courses are.

    I'm surprised your BS in CS requires economics classes. I guess that's good, especially if you're going to wind up writing code for accounting or something like that.
    I am a programmer. My first duty is to God, then to nation, then to employer, then to family, then to friends, then to computer, and finally to myself. I code with dignity, honor, and integrity.

    Drexel is all about making students ready for the business world. That's why we've got a great co-op program, and that's why we have to take courses that have to do more about business than our major. It has its advantages and disadvantages. I'm somewhat reserving judgement for now.

    College graduate with several degrees, part time graduate student. Been there, done that. Been out in the real world for a little over a year now. It's a job and it pays the bills.

    I took a lot of CS courses, never learned much because by the time I got there, I already knew most of what was taught.

    Had some funny and completely off the wall professors, though.

    axon, Drexel is on a quarterly schedule. That means it has four 10-week terms a year rather than two longer semesters. As a result, it's not possible to cover as much material in a single term. That's probably why it takes Drexel four courses instead of three to teach calculus.
