Cutting down to the wire on costs. Troy seems to offer the cheapests degree in a Computer Science related Discipline. Of course they call it Applied computer science. What would be the disadvantage to the degree at Troy: http://www.troy.edu/ecampus/onlineundergraduateprograms/degrees/bscs.doc At $163 a credit hour it is less than $20k for a BS degree. With a minor in business it seems like a decent option. I am concerened however about well it would translate in the real CS world.
