    Hello Engineer Girl! I have sort of a difficult situation I'd like your advice on. Two years ago I graduated with a BA in Political Science, with the hopes of going to law school. After working at a corporate firm for two years, I've changed my mind. I absolutely loved earning my degree, everything about political science amazes me, but gaining that education was only a small part of my lifetime dreams. In undergrad, I really wanted to get a second degree in computer engineering or software ...

    Hello! First, I love your website. Thank you for taking the time to put together this great resource! My question is, can I pursue a degree in computer science with an undergraduate degree in theatrical design? I haven't taken a math class since high school, and I understand that I have a lot of work ahead of me. But I refuse to give up without trying. I can use CAD programs, know HTML, and advanced Excel. So I hope thats a start! Please let me know what steps I should be taking if I want to ...
