Thing is, in Oxford the course involves very little time actually using computers. It's mostly pure and statistical maths, and writing programs in pseudocode.
:D Ulciscor :D

I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

That's how alot of Computer Science courses are.  It actually isn't terribly difficult to master programming languages.  It's the algorithms and stuff that's the heavy heavy.

Only problem is there were alot of people in my comp sci courses who couldn't actually... um, what's the word I'm looking for?  Oh yeah, program.  Go figure.

I personally just chose to enlist and receive some 50,000/303,587.50 DKK after I get out, plus fully paid tuition while I'm in. Not too bad of a trade-off, I'll probably be getting out in a couple of years and then going back to college.

Nice to be reminded of the meaning of WWW sometimes :)
