Currently, im a 14 yr. old 9th grader, Im taking the only programming course my school has, and thats with VB.net. I know C, some C++, and little MIPs Assembly. (scripting wise i know Lua, but that doesnt really matter) so I feel as if I have a firm grip on the programming concept/'theory'. This has led me to being very far along in my school programming course to a point Im past 3rd semesters work in 1/2 of the first semester. My teacher has recommended a few of his best students to talk to a college professor (Easter Washington University) on computer science. After researching it a little, computer science seems like something Id enhoy doing. So, on thursday im to meet with the professor and next week, he's to give us a presentation.
So, the whole point of this thread now that you have the just of it: should I expect something of this? Can scholarships come from this hobby of programming i enjoy doing? Should I mention my prior programming experience (ive developed software for hte PSP (quite alot actually... its my TI-Calculator to those who used to develope for that))?
So basically... Should I watch what I say in return for something? Or, the opposite extreme, Im far to young to think to much of this...
Sorry for hte ranting, Im just a little curious...
Thanks for any info or suggestions.
P.S. Im being pretty formal here, Im trying not to act my age as it leads to people giving me false positives 8-\
