    Sorry, my fault - I switched from saying 'not bad' to 'decent', and I didn't quite make the edit right. It doesn't look like an MIT-level program, but it looks pretty good. [/quote] oooh i see.. yeah, that's pretty much what I want to. Just a good college with a good CS program. anyway, I'll tell them to search for colleges with programs that are like the one on Kennesaw. Thanks for all the help, everyone. And if anyone would like to say anything related to this, please do. haha

    That looks pretty comparable to our CS program - I'd say that's a decent bad choice. [/quote] what do you mean by decent bad choice?

    Let's just be clear about one thing: if he's there on a sports scholarship, then there is quite possible no such thing as free time. Consider 25+ hours a week of practice out of season, and considerably more than that in season. Not to mention missing classes and exams for away competitions, and having to drop classes because professors refuse to accept the athletic department's dispensation to miss exams... By the time he has finished with workout, practice, classes and homework, he'll be lucky to have the energy to crack open a beer, let alone fire up visual studio for the next 8 hours. [/quote] yeaah thats true.. it'll be tough to do things on my free time.. thats another reason why the college should have as most things as possible...

    okay, so far this is the courses list: Programming Assembly level programming Computer Architecture Software Engineering Computer Graphics Data Structure Algorithms Communication Networks Al and Expert Systems Human Factors Mathematics Physics Web development Software development Operating Systems Network Programming Databases anyone would add something else? and maybe some thoughts about how the college should be in another way...

    It seems to me that think college is just a waste of time. I can't really say much but in my researches I found lot of people that was studying in some good colleges (not top like those on the ivy league) and had plenty of good things to say. Teachers that really wanted to help, good environment to study, etc. I don't wanna sound rude or anything, but don't you think your vision is that way because you didn't have a good experience in college? If it really was the way you say it is I don't think anyone would spend the amount of money they spend in college. Anyway, I wanna see more opinions about what you said..

    Well, now that you know my exact situation, what do you think I should tell the company? Something that garantees that I'm going to a good college.

    What resources the college has isn't. You have to learn on your own regardless, but there's no need to make your life harder by paying for help that is bad, or isn't well suited to what you want to learn. [/quote] yeaah thats what I think too.

    What a good college must have?

    Let me try to explain how it is. The company I'm going with has a lot of contacts in the US with several trainers and colleges. So they do all the talk and negotiations. They need to see if my grades are good enough for the school and if I play good enough to get a scholarship there. So it's kinda hard for me to just choose one good university, you know? That's why I'm asking you guys what are some basic courses for me to go, or maybe some good school facts like if its a research college or not... Something that makes me sure im going to a good college. I know that college isn't everything and I'll probably gonna have to take some courses online or on my own, but regardless that its still a pretty big decision to make...

    I was doing that, but I heard that the ABET accreditation is not that big of a deal for Computer Science. A lot of good schools aren't accredited in CS but the course is great.

    What a good college must have?

    Oh, I see.. but do you think any degree in Computer Science would be good? Because I'm going to usa with a company, and they're choosing the college for me, but I'm afraid that they choose a bad college, so I was thinking in sending them a list of some courses that the college should have. So far I got this: Programming Assembly level programming Computer Architecture Software Engineering Computer Graphics Data Structure Algorithms Communication Networks Al and Expert Systems Human Factors Mathematics Physics Web development Software development I don't know if they're all really required.. But what do you think about this list?

    What a good college must have?

    hey guys... so, i wanna be a game programmer, and im going to college in august. But there's a problem: I need to go to one with a good computer science program, with the right courses and stuff. And there's a detail: I'm brazilian that is getting a scholarship playing tennis in usa, so I can't go to colleges like digipen because they dont have sports there. So I was wondering if you could help me saying what are the basics that any good college for computer programmers should have, the courses and stuff.. This would be very helpful. sorry if there are any english mistakes, as I said, i'm brazilian haha
