I'm at UT right now, majoring in computer science.
At times I've been thinking about doubling in math. Also entertained thoughts of majoring in history, but I know that's not going to happen.
Money's not that big of an issue. UT's cost is pretty low and I have a couple of scholarships, so it's not really a problem.
I haven't really looked for a job yet; I think I'm going to get one this year, probably doing computer stuff for my friend's dad. But it's really easy for comp sci majors to do internships, I've heard, and they probably help more down the road than your average job.
Most of the college stereotypes fit me to a T, I think. Liberal, lazy, etc.
My hometown is Houston, so I'm about 3 hours away (2 if you are cool with doing 95). UT was my first and only choice, and I don't think location really fit into anything. The two things that mattered the most were the cost and the program. UT has a great CS department (along with a lot of great other departments). I don't really miss my high school friends, as I am still friends with a few that go to UT, and besides that, I've picked up a lot of new ones to hang out with.
Three things to help me out in college:
1. Somebody that could stand behind me and motivate me to do shit all day instead of sitting in front of the computer.
2. You know, I think 1 would be all I need.
The most difficult thing to me not really want to get out of bed for that early class or that boring lecture on American History, but getting up and going anyway. So there's always a slight pressure thoughout all the semesters. That and right before finals. Saying screw it and going home to crash and keeping at whatever you're doing can definitely make the difference between a B and an A.
Despite all the outsourcing concerns, I know a lot of companies are clamoring out there for decent programmers. And honestly, I haven't really thought that much about my future. College is too much fun to do that.
The administration is good; they have just about everything online so it's pretty easy to get to. It's a great school, you just have to find your niche, find people who you enjoy hanging out with, and you'll have fun.

It was pretty clear to me that that whole interview was just a big joke.
