I'm a student at ITT Technical Institute. I was enrolled in their Bachelors degree program for Software Engineering. However, I'm way ahead of anyone else pursuing the same degree and will be graduating with an Associates degree in Software Applications Programming in a few months, take a 9 month break, then pick up with the Bachelors program again. I'm beginning to question the value of a Bachelors from ITT.
1. What are my career options with an Associates degree?
2. What's the likelihood that my credits will transfer to a state college/university, or should I continue at ITT?
3. If I were to pursue something in game or web development, having the Associates, what would be my next step?
Any guidance will be greatly appreciated!
4. My laptop is near death! Needs to be replaced. I'm looking into refurbished laptops on ebay. Funds are tight and don't want to spend more than $300. What specs do i need to run VS '08, adobe flash/photoshop smoothly?
