Hey Baxate, my name is Caden, and I’m 17 years old. I have a few questions that have been lingering, and I was hoping you could dispel some of my fears about the industry itself. Ever since I was 15, I’ve been immensely interested in Computer Science and have since studied it. I feel lost at the moment as I don’t have clarification on what my prospective goals should entail. I’ve covered some data structures and have learned languages such as JS, CSS, HTML, and Lua. I currently have a 3.5 GPA and was hoping you could give me some advice pertaining to university and how I can further take initiative in order to make admission into some of the top schools more conducive. Unfortunately, my school doesn’t provide many APs and doesn't specifically provide anything involving computer science. For my senior year, I’ll be taking Pre-Calc, College Algebra, Software & Hardware (Dual Credit), Introduction to Computers (Dual Credit), and English. My other local university has offered to allow me to take their statistics course as well, but currently I don’t feel comfortable putting more pressure on myself prior to undergrad. P.S. I also didn’t have a clear direction my freshman year, which resulted in catastrophic damage to my GPA.
