Main Question or Discussion Point
So, I currently attend Texas A&M in college station and im a sophomore majoring in computer science in pretty good standing i suppose with a 3.659 gpa. My question is, is it really even necessary for me to attend this school when i could be going to a cheaper school back in my hometown of dallas tx? I mean i am learning pretty much everything on my own out of the books anyways and im just using the professors help when i have a few questions. Class is great but it seems like we are not doing enough. I have barely had any projects to turn in and so i mostly do a lot of outside projects to hone my skills. I am going to school not to make some ground breaking discoveries or anything, i just want to graduate and get a good job. I know A&M isnt the top school for anything however it does have a very good reputation for engineering. People tell me that if i stay here i will get a great job upon graduation however if i transfer back home that i will only get an ok job. For example, i was thinking about transfering to UTD. I thought it will be what i can do and show in the interview that matters but i am not even totally sure. So would it be wise to come back home and go to school for a lot cheaper? Plus i hear UTD is pretty good school for computer science.
