I'm paying almost $350k to do a BS in CS in Miami. Is it worth it? Am I crazy? My family is paying for it.

Are they just wasting money?

Can't you get that degree for cheaper elsewhere?

It'll probably pay itself off, especially if you get an actual SWE job. But still, 350k seems way too high.
>>
>>88773109
no, yes and yes. you can get a CS degree almost for free in a country where college isn't a scam.
lmao, imagine dropping 350k on a CS degree.

Those schools won't let you walk into a MAGMA job. You'll have to spend ten years at some ad company before they'll even interview you. If you're not rich enough to be in a good school you're not rich enough to walk into a good job.

ah I see so the rankings on the german website I found are weird.
got a question, those tuition on your website, the 50k+, are they per semester or yearly?
>>
>>88773335

I'm paying about $50k per semester.
>>
>>88773357
that's crazy, so the families who don't have enough money could never send their kids to an university in america?
this would never be possible in germany, everybody can study here if they are smart enough and not some low IQ bastard.
and this brings me to OP's question
>>88773109
>Are they just wasting money?
they are wasting money if you don't study and work hard for your degree.
>>
>>88773395

My university is different. It's a private school and it's expensive.

Many students are on financial aid etc. but my parents are paying out of pocket because they have the money. I told them they're wasting it and they don't think so.
>>
>>88773109
>$350k for a code monkey degree
I spent less on a medfag degree and have guaranteed employment for life
>>
>>88773420
>I told them they're wasting it and they don't think so.
yeah I know why they are saying it, it's clear because from what I know, correct me if I am wrong here with my german wisdom lol, the more you spend for an university in america the better chances you have later to get a very good paid job, no?
>>
>>88773436
>I spent less on a medfag degree and have guaranteed employment for life
and you are working much much more hours in the week, study a lot more years and have basically no life.

not necessarily but many people from UM got good jobs at FAANG etc.
>>
>>88773436

what are you? a physician?
>>
>>88773465
then I would say go for it, learn, study and work hard for a nice degree and make your parents proud so they know they didn't waste their money.
>>
>>88773458
I always love when bugmen brag about how much money they make for how little work. Everything in the modern world is so cheap that you can easily live on minimum wage if you're not concerned with buying acres of land you won't use. People should focus on self improvement, and you don't need some tranny in California to validate you for that.
>>
Take a leap of faith and go to europe for a degree.

You will:
-Spend Less money
-Maybe learn a new language
-Learn something about life
-Maybe fuck whores
-Get the same useless degree that you'd get in america but at least having a bit of fun

Just apply and see the visa requirements. Use google.

It's easy as shit for americans as far as I know. There may be even financial aids for an already cheap as fuck or even free degree.

Degrees are free in Germland but with maybe 10% of what a degree costs in burgerland you could get a degree in any fucking country there. Look in the netherlands, maybe a nordic country.

Fuck, I hate americans, you guys have it too easy.
>>
>>88773482
Yeah, admissions so I don't have to take my work home with me and can free load on my off weeks. I'm contemplating taking on extra work, but I detest outpatient clinics and anything where I have to follow up with patients
But on the flip side I can take on students at $1k a month each if I go that route

Medfag residencies and positions are basically guaranteed at this point because of how much of a shortage there is. Those 4 years of post grad + 3 years residency will be ass, but after that it's the easy life relative to most other professions with stable employment because Americans aren't getting any healthier
You can be bringing in a cool $200k-$500k a year depending on specialty before you hit 30 with not a care in the world for things like recessions

>In the US
$50k or possibly even $100k might be worth it in the US, but only in ghr US since the wages for developers are so high, at least for now.
But why pay that much, it is a big liability to pay that much money and you can probably get a better education and cheaper somewhere else in the country.
>>
>>88773109
I honestly don't get it why american keep insisting in getting degrees in their own country. For that amount of money you could literally go to anywhere in Europe learn the same things, learn a new language, explore different culture, and live like a king for a couple of years.
But instead you choose to give money to the greedy pigs that ruin the lives of countless young Americans every year, and brainwash them with extreme leftist ideals.

you can basically cheat it by doing a lot of your credits on study.com or sophia or whatever it is. also every class if you already know the material you can just test out of at the very start of the class. i already taught myself computer science like 5-6 years ago as a neet so 90% of it was trivial. only annoying part for me was i didnt know java and they make you do projects with some ancient and retarded java framework that no one on earth uses, javafx i think it is.

>>88773848
yeah but it's really only the communications / business majors who are notorious for that, plenty of other schools where it's just nerds doing real math and struggling. I definitely didn't have time to party, don't regret going especially when you look at tuition for some other places. What I paid in 4 years is what people pay in 1 semester now it's fucking nuts.

>>88773825
Fear of leaving the USA, outrageous international tuition rates even in Europe (there are exceptions though like Aalto was about the same price when I was looking at places to go internationally.) I probably would have gone to Europe as well if I didn't get scholarships for ASU. >>88774003 is also partially right that some places will turn their nose up at you if you don't have an AMERICAN degree, but I don't think that happens often in software development.

that’s without room and board? you’re paying to be placed with other people whose parents can afford it. you’re going to become inbred with the ritz if you’re not careful. great for connections to wealthy families, but wealthy people have their own set of problems you’ll become indoctrinated with if you don’t know about it

join the military unironically. at least consider it. GI bill is fucking stellar, and that's assuming that you 1.) don't get a job as a DOD civilian/contractor after (basically everyone in sigint/cyber) or 2.) reenlist.

I am American and I am going to uni for free. (in fact i am being payed to go) It is completely possible to graduate debt free without having wealthy parents like OP but you have to earn your ride. Either by being a good student and earning a full academic scholarship, being a good atheate can earn you an athletics scholarship.

There is also a third way to get a free ride through college, a guaranteed income for life free medical care and all that other lovely shit socialists harp about. Serve in the military I gave Uncle Sam 15 years of my life the whole time I had no real living expenses so was able to bank all of my earnings now that I am out I have a real easy ride through civilian life. GI bill covers my Uni bills plus a paycheck while i am attending on top of my pension and if I ever need Medical I just have to flash my TRICARE card. and the best part being a vet makes me a "Minority" so I get all that sweet ass "Affirmative action" hiring priority.

That's absolutely retarded if you're not trolling. You don't even need a degree to be a programmer nowadays, and it's a running joke in the industry how little of CS you'll actually use in real life. It's probably the most self-teachable subject out there if you're a reasonably smart person.
If you're not elite enough to get into Berkeley, Stanford, Caltech, or an Ivy, just go to community college and transfer, hopefully to a school near where your parents live. Mid-tier private schools that charge 60k a year are the biggest ripoff.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch?

I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.
