Well I can understand that, it is very easy for newcomers to just get overwhelmed. What do you think my chances are of getting into the school you are going to? I mean I've been doing C++ for about a year now, so by the time I'm applying to colleges that's 3 years programming under my belt. I'm good at math (I will probably have 5 math courses by the time i'm done with high school). I'm okay at science, I don't have as much of an aptitude with that as with math, but I will have taken both chemistry and physics by the time I'm done with high school.
No, in an attempt to keep newer programmers from getting intimidated and dropping out, they only allow us to do ascii-based games first year
