    How many of you are in college?

    I am about to start computer programming this fall and I'm wondering how many others are in college. If not, what do you do for a living?

    Well, I was suppose to start school this Semptember,
    but the bank wouldn't give me a student loan (no cosigner).

    Anyway, I had to defer my enrollment until 2002, so I can
    have enough time to save up money for the ~$6000/semester
    tuition.

    *whine* I want to start school now *whine*

    Yeah, I know. My gf's dad is an accountant, and he's not a dork, just a complete jerk.

    This probably (obviously) doesn't apply to everyone either

    Going on 7 years of college. I initially obtained an Associates in Criminal Justice but decided not to pursue a career in law enforcement. Instead, I have continued with my education and am currently a junior (with about 2 years left....AAARRGHH!!) at Colorado Technical University. I am working for a BS in Information Technology. I work full-time and am "married with children"; hence the prolonged educational experience.

    I currently work in the industry at WorldCom as a software systems engineer (programmer geek).

    BASIC? Bleecchhh! And I thought my 10th grade Pascal class 5 years ago was bad...

    If we start to notice excessive GOTOs in your code, should we come to Florida and take your computer?
