Comp sci/comp eng would be the most logical path. Data science is the hot new field though and I know a lot of colleges are starting to offer it as a major so I’d recommend checking that out as well! You could possibly get by with a non-engineering major as well, although it may be a little more challenging

I wouldn't recommend data science undergrad. The entry level market is completely impacted with masters and PhD graduates, and the learned skills are not as flexible as in CS.

Advice pls! Have been on 3 dates with a guy over last 3 weekends and they were all nice—involved going to the park, getting dinner, getting drinks, going to an art gallery and all at night. At the end of the 3rd date we hooked up. I like him and don’t want this to be a fling. He just texted me to come over and hang out for a cozy afternoon...aka hook up. I’m not sure what to do bc I do want to see him but don’t want this to be casual. Is there something I can say at the end of our hangout today?

I will be graduating this Fall, currently interning for TI as a Product Marketing Engineer; I will most likely accept an offer for their Technical Sales Representative 9month rotation program. The pay seems great ($113k base&bonus + 115% - 250% Payout) after finishing the rotation program. I enjoy the Sales Engineer role and think TI is a great company. Is it worth it to still apply to other companies this Fall recruiting season? (I want to be in San Francisco and possibly NYC.)
