Hello, my name is Mike and I wanted to do a complete career change into IT/Computer Science in the field of Software Engineering. I already have a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCSB and I would like to parlay that into a MS degree in computer science. I did not get a very good GPA in college compared to my 4.4 GPA in High School. I partied alot and struggled with some alcohol and drug dependency issues that I have been set free from for a few years (through the affection of Jesus). I ended up with a 2.48 GPA for my BA degree, which basically disqualifies me from many graduate schools. I am looking for programs similar to Harvard Extension school, where there is an open admissions process. HES is definitely an option for me, but I would like to lay out all the different options and make the best choice possible. So, any of you guys know of any other schools (NO FOR-PROFIT schools please) that have open admission and are preferably designed for career change. I would need to probably take some pre-requisite courses in basic programming as a part of this MA program. Thank you for your help.
