Positive Negative Neutral Advice
After dropping out of university during my finalComputer Engineering
After dropping out of university during my final semester due to personal reasons. Although my intent was to go back as soon as I was able, but the opportunity wasn't there. Therefore, I was left without options. All the hard work I put into towards my Architecture degree for 4.5 years was without reward other than knowing that if I could have stuck with it, I could have made it through. However, I was in a very precarious situation at that time and it was extremely difficult if not impossible to stay in school.

After several jobs here and there. I saw an infomercial on TV one night about CLC. It sounded very compelling with promise. I worked 9 hours a day Monday through Saturday and attended CLC on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Lab on Saturdays. After almost 2 years of this crazy schedule, I finally graduated from CLC in San Jose with a Network Engineering, Management(NEM) degree. I was also fortunate enough to have met some awesome instructors who gave me great advice. One instructor offered me an intern position on the days when I wasn't in school. This opportunity really helped me a lot.

Suffice to say, regardless of what other comments or reviews they post online, I'm a firm believer that "you" are in charge of your own destiny, pave your own way. If you can't find the path to travel on, create a path. The information technology profession is a vast industry with opportunities everywhere. Its actually easier to find career opportunities today than it was 20 years ago.

I'm not here to endorse CLC or other trade schools, but my only purpose in sharing my testimony is to challenge young people and current professional who are looking to change their careers by sharing my experience with you all, that hard work will pay off no matter what. If the opportunities don't present itself immediately, don't be discouraged, people will take notice and will be willing to give you the very break you need.Good Luck

Question
I went to CLC to become a computerComputer Science
I went to CLC to become a computer operator, basically dropped out of college to do this and any obligations what were tied to college. If I were to do it all over again, I would have stayed in college until I really knew what I wanted. Money motivated me, but when I never reached my money motiviation went downhill fast. College isn't always the answer. The answer to your ultimate question should be: What do you want to do for the rest of your life? Will you be happy in doing what you are doing? Lastly, what steps do you need to take to get there and are you willing to do what it takes? If you answer any of those in the negative light, then you need to re-evaluate your goals. Stay in a community college and work on your general ed, since you need that out of the way. Dabb in a class or two to see if it's for you.
