Ok, I need straight talk and honest opinions. I am over 35 and entered college for the first time two years ago, working toward a degree in CIS. Basics are out of the way and I am now getting to the MEAT of my degree plan. My question is this: Whis is better a degree in computer science or computer information systems? I love working with computers and people and relish the chance to blend the two, but I need to be able to earn the best wage possible after graduation. Unfortunately, due to the fact I have been out of school for so long my math skills are only average. Also, I never took calculus, physics or even trig in high school. The CIS does not require as much math as the CS degree does. I can be do it, if need be but it will be HUGE struggle. If you were me, would you buckle down and struggle through the math for CS degree or is there really a big salary difference between the two? Any opinions would be greatly appreaciated it's time to register for fall courses and if necessary change degree plans. Thanks!

You should first ask yourself what you want to do after the studies. Are you better to see the big picture or do you like to play around with data structures? Are you more business oriented than a nerd? What sort of "supporting" subjects do you take in the college?…
