What are some steps I can take to ensure that majoring in Computer Science is right for me?
I have encountered coding since middle school, and was interested in it ever since. However, I am currently taking AP Computer Science A right now in high school, and the class is somewhat a little challenging. That made me doubt if it is fit for me to major Computer Science because it will be even more challenging and competitive in college. computer-science college choosing-major
On the other hand, if you know someone who is working or studying the subject, I would encourage you to speak to them as well.
Furthermore, you can also seek advice from the career counselor in your school .
If you are interested in the subject and you have an offer from the college, don't worry too much! Let's try first. You can still consider to change if you find this is not suitable to you.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
I would recommend trying out some 'challenge problems' and seeing if you like doing things like that. Sometimes class can get pretty boring/confusing/deviate from what a computer science job actually looks like. I've found that the challenge problems are much closer to what a job in computer science actually looks like. Hopefully this helps, but sometimes it is hard to know what you want to do for a job before going to college.
