Hey! If you have the will to do it then do it! Dont let anyone tell you different. People will say dont do it and blah blah blah but if thats something you really want to do then go for it. Good Luck!

With any computer job, they mainly look at your job experience. I have a good friend who never graduated from college and making good money working as a database designer. I’m sure there are jobs, maybe not the best paying jobs that you qualify for. You can start there and work yourself up.

Yes, doing well in a reputable masters’ program will make up for your undergraduate performance, but you have to get in first. And your current GPA is going to be just as much of an issue with the kind of graduate programs that are going to help you get hired as it is with companies, if not more so. You may want to consider working for now and taking continuing education courses to help shore up the areas you’re weak in and prove you’re serious about learning before applying – assuming the courses aren’t enough to impress employers on their own.

If you can get into a Grad school, then do it. Most people say they will do it but never do. Do focus on your grades now and in grad school and get help writing a good resume. Also, work on your extra curricular activities. My company was impressed with all the extra stuff I did in college (and two of the things were just national memberships and the other was a group I attended once a week for a semester). Perhaps you can work at a “crappy” company over the summer that focuses on CS for the experience and your resume. Hope this helps and good luck!

Well, it may be difficult to be accepted in a graduate program because of your low GPA. Most schools won’t accept a student below a GPA of 3.0. My brother is an example. He wanted to get an advanced degree in criminal justice, but he had something like a GPA of 2.7 and they wouldn’t take him, regardless of having almost 20 years experience as a police officer. A friend of mine from graduate school had an undergraduate GPA of something like 2.8 or 9 and they didn’t accept him until he went to the graduate studies administrator and talked his way into the program. He ended up with a 3.8 with his master’s but he was almost not accepted.

So, unless you can talk your way into a program, take one of the graduate student entrance exams (like the SAT) and score high, or bring your GPA up before you graduate, you may be out of luck getting into a graduate studies program. Talk to your advisor.

If you can’t get a job with your GPA what makes you think you can get into a masters program with that GPA?
