I'm kinda embarassed to be graduating from this department.
Sitting in the CS lounge now... what dorks.
I should've double majored.
I could stay another year or half year and do it.
Hrm.
If only I'd planned this all out ahead of time.

so what???

i graduated in CS. i thought about being embarrassed for about two seconds, and then i was proud of myself. 30 people at LSU (population 30,000) graduated in CS when i did. (may 1999). it is probably much the same where you are.

don't worry...two years from now it won't matter which dorks you graduated with. people will just be very effing impressed you have a degree in cs.

I'm confused...

Hmmmm.

The first time you mentioned CS, you were in the computer lab, I thought you were talking about Counter Strike, but now that I see you're talking about graduating CS, I'm somewhat confused...

Please enlighten me :o)

Re: I'm confused...

Well, maybe that's because they knew you beforehand.

I don't know Brad and he _was_ talking about CS as something a bunch of kids were doing in the computer lab, so he eventually had to leave.

I don't know. I guess I could've googled a bit, but then we wouldn't have met, now would we? :o)

I totally agree... there were some LAME people I graduated with. Crazy they got the same degree I did, yet I know twice as much.

well..

Mr. Fitz- you could always go back as a second degree student and do another major, go part time and look wicked smart in the end.. of course it'll cost you a good chunk of time and money.. however it might be the payoff you want.. you should consider it.. if ya wanna discuss it I do work in the office of Academic Advisement at my school :)

Re: well..

I did that, and it just made me look like an even BIGGER dork. (Worse yet, now I just look like a dork who can never make up his mind. :)
