What do you want to do?
Obviously become a computer scientist or programmer.

Is school for a computer scientist or programmer worth it?
Don't know about science careers, but I've heard of self taught programmers being hired by companies and paid well. You might make more with a degree though.

I mean what kind of development do you want to do? Not everything requires a CS degree. And either way, it'd be useful to decide what subfield you want to move towards, even try a bit of that out now, before you commit to an education path.

Can you get an internship while you are in school? This may be the only way you can get hired once you graduate.
