No, not from me. Who would I be to do that, being a college student myself? The advice comes from Joel Spolsky. Somebody who, by now, does no longer need introduction. Apparantly he’s enjoying a Christmas break or something because this is his “second essay”:http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/CollegeAdvice.html to come out in three weeks.
His advice is seven-fold:
Learn how to write before graduating.
Learn C before graduating.
Learn microeconomics before graduating.
Don’t blow off non-CS classes just because they’re boring.
Take programming-intensive courses.
Stop worrying about all the jobs going to India.
No matter what you do, get a good summer internship.
