Good at computers


The f***? You'll need to explain that one.

As a recent BS in CS, good luck getting anywhere without math skills. Sure you don't necessarily need partial derivatives and such, but basic trig and calculus should be ingrained into you at a certain point. Of course if your only aspiration is web development aka "HTML programming" (LOL) you've got it a lot easier.

If you're technically skilled with computers but poor at math then a trade diploma for computer support/service would probably serve you better than a degree.

Meh, this is bad data. I'm not a pro but a fairly adept programmer with years of experience and I despise math. Solid problem solving skills and common sense go a long way. Don't get discouraged because you don't like math.

Now, CS does indeed require a good deal of math but there are plenty of tech avenues to take other than CS.

Well I guess some people are satisfied being code monkeys... also just a guess, but I suspect a lot of your "problem solving skills" do involve math in some way shape or form.
