Major: Computer Science
Minor: Computer Information Systems

Why would I lie about being a computer science major. If I was gonna lie I would have said I'm an Anesthesiologists.

Nope, but at the same time I don't care lol. YOu see any job that has "gist" at the end means I'm not going to like it nor want to know about it.

 Not to mention lying about being the highest paying job in the country would be hard to pass off.

Oh and Uncharted 1 was alright, definitely worth a playthrough if you want to know what happened before 2, and its really not a bad game at all for the time. As for my lacking in FFXIII, its my first FF game so go easy :)

You don't get out much, huh?

that title goes to entrepreneurs. computer science might be the highest paying straight out of college without a graduate degree, but probably not even that

Lack of Rhythm + Being white = CRD

CRD = Caucasian Rhythm Deficiency

Horrible horrible disorder.. I've been suffering from it all my life.

I remember games from the NES days that were virtually impossible to beat because they were just that ♥♥♥♥♥ hard.  Oh man.. if you didn't have crack-head like timing, you just weren't getting through.  Best example would be Battle Toads.  But sadly, games that are ♥♥♥♥♥ near unbeatable don't sell.  You have to tune everything down to the slowest person in the group, and when the average book or newspaper is written on a 3rd to 4th grade reading level with the more "sophisticated" ones being written on an 8th grade level.. that gives you an idea of who the games these days tend to cater to.  The masses are dumbing down at a very high pace.. just watch "Idocracy", haha.

Plus with the vast quantity of games and platforms to play on, the average gamer doesn't ever have time to focus on one, so they are casual on all.  Wow is poster child of what happens when you cater to the casual masses.

k, I'm hungry.. bye.

Or Mega Man, but that continues to be f-ing impossible to beat.  And Idiocracy was an awesome movie.

Someone's school councilor has definitely been lying to them.  Comp Sci generally starts 45-55k with a BS.  Which is the range I started at in my career for Medical Imaging with an Associates.  That's *IF* you even get a job, most companies outsource to China or India because they work for peanuts compared to state-side workers.  They may tell you higher than that at school, but that is definite smoke being blown.. you are competing with foreigners who will work for fractions of that.  Being female, you may have a slight advantage over your male counter-parts mostly because geeks like chicks who are also geeks.  I know that's a crappy advantage to have and people like being hired on merit, not things like that, but its one you do have. 

Good Luck, yo
