>I took EE instead of CS
Feels good man, luckily I didn't fall in to the CS trap.
I'm glad you found something that makes you happy, OP, but be careful. It sounds like you're getting obsessed about casting yourself in contrast to CS, which seems like a pretty unhealthy obsession to have.
Did you not realize that you took an engineering degree? You have to learn the engineering part first before you can use that knowledge to analyze and design computer components.
I'm glad you enjoy taking time out of your schedule to dole out advice to other posters, anon, but be careful. It sounds like you're getting obsessed with calling other people obsessed, which seems like a pretty unhealthy obsession to have.
I definitely did jump into it, having screwed around throughout most of my summer post HS and really didn't do a sufficient amount of research.
I'm not doing bad at all, but it's just that I'm in my 2nd undergrad year, and of the 13 courses I've had only two were strictly CS related and I've only studied C (and not that well at that). I just wish we'd done more programming shit. It's probably mostly my fault for not taking the matter into my hands, but the hours are pretty tough already and when I'm not studying or having some sort of social life (>engineers\n>knowing how to party\npick one) I like to shitpost on the chan.
>tfw in 4. semester and thinking about dropping out of CS
Being wageslave does not sound much better.
Even if engineering paid much less I would rate it above law/econ. For the simple reason that engineers can make useful things everyone wants. I used to wonder how lawyers made it through the day without suffering panic attacks of meaninglessness, then I realized how common alcoholism was for them.
Ditto for economists. They're like MBAs who don't even run an actual business, so they just tell everybody how things should work, then get BTFO by reality. If you're a level 99 economist then maybe the press will lionize you as you destroy the economy.
Prove me wrong.
Business Administration (I know)
CS 101 (C)
Physics (Mechanics + Thermo + EM)
Geom & Algebra
A CS course dealing mostly with C applied to processors and OS (don't know what it translates to)
Logic & Algebra
>be long-term NEET
>start studying CS
>go to classes about 3 hours a week+exams
>people think i'm some kind of genius because I know the most basic stuff
>get money for being a student
>basically still a NEET
I honestly didn't expect it to turn out that way, but I'm fine with it.
>panicking about not being able to find any internships
>all of a sudden companies start noticing me
>get 9 months of experience in 2 different companies in the same year
>immediately get a call for a full time position opportunity
>ace interviews and get hired
>company is gonna pay my rent, give me a car and fly me out to Silicon Valley in May when I graduate
>mfw the rest of my friends cant land a job and have to settle for grad school to offset their debt and have more time to look
fucking CS fags and other engineers get nothing but rejection letters. Fucking retards lmao.
EE MASTER RACE
You better learn C and start doing some microcontroller projects or get involved in you university's robotic teams.
Most companies need at least a 3.0 to get hired but youre gonna have to bust your ass outside of class to make up for those shitty grades.
I'm EE riding that 3.0 line GPA. Getting sweet internships. I think as long as you're >=3.0 with intern/coop experience you should be fine.
>tfw "database administration" at shitty state college
>all we do is write queries, stored procedures and learn the architecture of oracle 11g and sql server 2012
>tfw I dun fucked up
Jesus fuck, does everyone here work for shit companies who don't care who they hire? No wonder most of you faggots are NEET lmao
