It seems that 50% of the people I know say "Do Comp Sci!!! It is the future and you can't go wrong with it no matter how things look right now." The other 50% say "If you major in CS, you will be driving trucks no matter how good you are. If not, you will definitely get replaced by the time you're 35." Why, is computer science such a controversial major in this respect? Should I go with accounting instead for the job security? Can anyone give me an overview of what the career of a programmer/software engineer may be like, and how fast you can expect to be advancing?
