Is this normal for STEM degrees?

I am doing computer science and I barely have any free time. It's all just studying, gym, cooking, sleeping and working part-time 10h. This cannot be it, right? Maybe I am retarded? The workload is insane, where even is the payoff for this madness?

      You're literally me but younger. I'm at work now making 120k and in an hour I'll be at the gym. You never work anywhere close to 8h a day in an IT job.

      Not sure about CS but I was in your shoes studying to be a dentalfag and I'm buying out an apartment per year and living debt free.
      If it's going to bring in money, it's worth the hassle.

      Nah you are just working hard bro, education pays off if you work hard. School is hard work.

      No one just hands you a job though, unless through nepotism.

      If you want a job out of school would look at internships or networking, professional groups, stuff like that.

      Yes. That sounds like me in college. 10 years later I make 150,000$/yr. Full benefits. Wfh. They match 401K. Actually work about 8 hours a week. Wiggle the mouse and workout or play video games or do chores the other hours of the week. Still can’t login to Linux. Only time I have to go in is to pull or rack a server.

      Is the money really worth it missing out on the college life? I will graduate late at 27 (including a Masters degree) because I started late. No money can give you back the fun university experience. I have a friend who is studying business and he fucks tons of pussy all the time and goes to parties, events, does lots of sports, had 2 girlfriends.

        [...]
        Dude what jobs are you guys working. I’ve never met anyone irl who is able to get away with this. Where and what do you guys do.

        After 6 years I made it as a Sr. Dev for a fortune 500 garden gnomecrew, I don't work the full 8 hours like the 150k goodgoy (I'm a bad goy), but that's OK because I value my time. Just learn to code, be White, not autistic and not a soiboi. They want to hire Chads knowing they can one day lead the Soiboys. IT is the best job because you WFH and don't work. This is me right now not working.

        Started out on helpdesk and worked my way up. I'm a server admin. Backups, Monitoring, SAN & VMWare & Windows Server administration. Its pretty routine once you understand it.

        Hardest part of my job is honestly having patience with Pajeets. I can't describe how much I hate pajeets. Their scripts and code are held together with curry and hope. They all live in the same apartment and work contract, save every penny and send it back to their family in Bengal Pradesh or wherever the fuck they're from. They then leave after 10 years as their visa/green card expires and they go live in their village like a king. They smell bad, they backstab you. They use a caste system, and they're awkward with the women. I can't understand most of their accents. Not one of their women are attractive. If it weren't for indians I would probably be even more successful but I have to 'do the needful' and play their gay fucking games

              I doubt that

              My wife didn't go to college. She was home schooled, and stayed at home and lived with her parents. I wasn't even allowed to ask her out. I did (we met at church) but then she said I have to ask her dad to have a 'courtship' as she wasn't allowed to date and it needed to be supervised. I thought that was pretty weird despite her being 19, but I respected her and her families wishes. I would be very shocked if she was riding dick while that was happening. My father in law was a former marine and doesn't play games. He complimented me that I got out of my car and rang the doorbell and shook his hand like a man and met him before taking her out. He also complimented that I walked her to the door, where he was waiting with his shotgun after our first date. I know for a fact I took her virginity, since there was blood all over my penis from her hymen. I have since been impregnating her ever since. Luckily, she has gotten more promiscious as time has went on. Although I told her that was my biggest reservation before we got married, that she was inexperienced and prude, and she promised to explore more. Just recently, she let me tit fuck her for the first time, and then sent me a video of her playing with herself with a 'rose vibrator' this week. Being married is very fun, and the kids are a joy.

              You shouldn't just assume every women are like the whores you have apparently dated anon.

You yourself state that it took a shotgun-wielding hardass marine to keep your wife from going for the first guy to come along. Church girls are some of the most whorish sluts out there. I'd know, I have been going to church all my life. When i was 15, i joined the Catholic Youth group. The guys and girls there weren't there for studying the Bible, they were there to go get wasted at the club afterwards and then have intoxicated sex. No sunshine and rainbows, trips to help impoverished people, none of that. It was just a preamble to pure gluttonous, hedonistic revelry. It was disgusting. Other than that, i have never met someone my age in church, only old ladies. You got extremely lucky. Others don't share your fortune.

        You can have a decent college life even when studying hard stuff if you get a good routine and know when you can slack off and when you can't.
        Us STEMcels don't have those experiences because we are autistic. I go to parties frequently, but I'm to shizoid to pull chicks and most of the social events I go to are through people in my classes which are always full of guys and similarly autistic chicks.

        Also lads what is up with women's disdain for CS? I'd always thought they at least be impressed because it's hard and it will pay well. And then when you're IST and decent looking on top of that it wouldn't have any downsides?
        But my experience is always the same:

        As somebody who partied hard their first two years of college and just fully embraced the degenerate lifestyle and had a lot of fun and was going to parties 3-4 times a week, the studying is a better idea. You should somehow make time for a social life where you interact with new people or atleast a bigger group of people, but don't make the mistake of thinking about the ultra secret "cool parties" going on at your campus. It's not as cool as you think if you were to experience it. It may feel that way at first but after awhile you just realize it's just a gathering of degenerates and their vices coming together to try to feel some happiness. It's not as happy and cool as it sounds when you never do it. Just a bunch of drunk people trying to get laid or get drunker or do drugs or start fights or whatever it may be.

        It's not worth losing any sleep over I promise. I wish I tried harder my first go round of college

      Is the money really worth it missing out on the college life? I will graduate late at 27 (including a Masters degree) because I started late. No money can give you back the fun university experience. I have a friend who is studying business and he fucks tons of pussy all the time and goes to parties, events, does lots of sports, had 2 girlfriends.

      Yup. Proper CS, not shitty american college coding classes, is extremely difficult and on par with math, engineering, physics etc. But on top of usual difficult exams you get in STEM you have insane workload of projects and shit. Why the fuck do you think a data science or ML engineer earns so much? You think that's just because they got lucky in choosing their major?
      Just think of the future anon. Your life doesn't end at 30. Imagine what you can do in life with a job that pays 100-200k/year. The freedom of choosing your workplace. Or going part time and earning a completely acceptable comfortable living wage for 20-30 hours a week.
      And if you do it right you still have a life outside of that.

      CS isn't coding you braindead gay. I had like 2 classes related to programming in my entire bachelors. I learning python in my 3rd semester because I needed it in my applied numerics class. They didn't give us any introduction or help. The professor just said "these exercises need to be completed in python, no other language will be accepted", linked the python documentation and that's it. If you don't get at least 70% of the points on 12 total exercise sheets you won't even be admitted to the exam. An exam that has a 30% passing rate.
      I love CS, I look forward to out earning literally everyone I know but god is it frustrating to have people think you plug in keyboards and install windows while all you do is read math textbooks and do complicated theory all day. And then they get impressed by some dimwit studying law or medicine lmao

      I started in computer science at a small private school and by computer science 3 I had no idea WTF was going on. We were writing operating systems out of Java. On top of that, the small school = smaller classes = more irrelvant homework and bullshit when I just want to learn CS. Not calculus and all of that nonsense that comes with a degree in the school of engineering. I was on a scholarship to play basketball and it was their only computer-ish degree.

      I noped out of there and transfered to a giant public university which had Computer Science and Information Systems. Switched to information systems (WAY WAY EASIER) in the school of business and went into infrastructure (although there was a software development 'focus' you could have done). My salary hit 100k at 30, 150k at 34. Maybe not as high as developers but still way higher than my peers.

      The salary gainz come from having the balls to switch jobs often (AND get some certifications and a masters if you can or graduate certificate). Contract jobs make this much easier without the stigma of "he quits jobs every ~year". By 30 I had worked at 6 places.

            I always wondered this. I graduated well before COVID so it might be a different story now, but this meme has been around forever. In my school, my professors knew my face. They knew each and every student, at least in the 300-400 level classes (and often the 200 level). Zero chance I could get someone to take an exam for me because the professor or proctor (usually the TA) would take one look and be like, "Who the fuck are you? What name did you just write/type, motherfucker?" No ID check needed.

            If you skate by your BS and your professors have no idea who you are... either you went to a real shit school or you are the lowest tier student, probably both.

                That other Euro is just coping. You will of course earn much more in the US, and pay way less to taxes.
                Here in Sweden it's perhaps realistic to look at a 60k salary after like 10 years. Can probably make this faster with job hopping and such. Entry level with a Master's degree is like 3.5-4k/month.
                Of this like 30-40% will be tax.
                On the new earnings, that surpasses like 4-4.5k/month or so you will pay 50% tax. I will try to trade it for kept salary but shorter work hours when that time comes.

                This shit may be worth it if you actually are a people, a folk, at least for me as a nationalist. But now with all the immigrants which will leech from this along with running the country, then fuck no. Honestly believe we may become more like the US in the future. This was also, funnily enough, an old plan of our old, economic right, prime minister, Fredrik Reinfeldt. He was the one who really opened the doors to immigration, published a book long ago about "waking the sleeping people".

They use a caste system, and they're awkward with the women. I can't understand most of their accents. Not one of their women are attractive.

          You must be young. Only people in their 20s are still naive enough to still have hope and think "if you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life". No. Fuck that. Work is bullshit. Its fucking gay. It sucks. I would literally rather be doing anything else besides working, and if I did something I loved like fishing, I would grow to hate fishing because fishing would be work. Truth is I want to eat donuts and get my dick sucked by a big boobed and watch movies all day while somehow maintaining a 6 pack and having someone wipe my ass for me. But it isn't fucking reality.

    Hey OP, you need to cut away extraneous time wasting from your life. Own less shit so you have less to clean and care for. Automate your cooking by using an easy to clean crockpot or instapot to make simple dishes that are easy to portion off for lunches or whatever. Possibly invest into a home gym so you eliminate travel time and you can study while you lift. Maybe find a job that's closer to you.

    Try to find things to cut away, it adds up.

    That depends. What year are you? If it's 1st or 2nd, it's actually quite normal. Some STEM degrees will make 1st year a kind of marketing phase and then 2nd year the weeding out phase, while others skip the marketing phase and start from weeding out.
    It gets easier by 3rd and even easier at 4th. If you can afford it, it's often a good idea to stretch out those first years (whichever one is the weeding out year) and complete your degree a year late.

NINE of my friends did this. Coincidentally, I had nine friends who were looking for out of state internships. They didn't all get their first choice in company, but they all got internships, and they all got decent return offers once they were done. Unless your state literally closed its borders (protip: no it didn't), you had options you failed to capitalize on.

    You can still do everything you wanna do, but you have to realize that there will be sacrifices along the way, but never long term ones. You can absolutely afford to go out to parties, study hard, and work out; all that matters is finding out what you personally want to prioritize while remaining comfortable with yourself and your accomplishments. It may seen daunting now, but stick with it and find a rhythm. It's worth it bro, I promise.

    There are 24 hours a day (16 accounting for 8 hours of sleep)

    If you find that you're not accomplishing enough per day, I find setting strict limits on how much time you spend on a task per day helps a lot - forces you to become more efficient with studying, and working on projects.

    Remember, the goal shouldn't be 'I need to put this much time into a task' it should be 'given this amount of time, I need to accomplish this task'.

    As for partying, university academics is daunting, but if you're putting in 6 hours a day to studying/working you certainly can take a day or 2 off to get shitfaced.

    It's strange to ask for a 'pay off' as the obvious one is monetary, but even that fades pretty quickly if you don't even kind of like the work you're doing. I'd say if you have a goal that necessitates a degree in cs the pay off is you'd be 1 step closer to achieving that goal, and pushing yourself now will set you up with a lifestyle that'll only compound in value as you get older.

    I'm assuming this is stemming from the feeling that you're not getting laid, and you're experiencing fomo so here's something to consider.

    Most of the girls in college who are willing to fuck just because you happen to be in the same sweaty room, are not people you should want in your life. At least when I went to college, sorority girls are as dumb as a brick, act like children, and are usually bums who are barely more hygienic than their male counterparts.

    It's cheesy to say, but sex is way better with someone you actually want to be intimate with, otherwise masturbating is is just as effective in quelling your hormones.

    I'm guessing you're a freshman or sophomore. Eventually you'll realize the rule of 1,10,100:70,90,100. With 1% effort you can get 70% results; C's get degrees. There's no reason to push yourself to the max studying when you can put the minimum effort in, get a passing grade, and spend the rest of your time enjoying yourself. College is for networking and sports. You will never be in better shape in your life, and you will never live in as dense a population of people with whom you have a lot in common. Take advantage of it and don't waste your time doing something you can do after college.

    college is pretty hard, but your career will have great work-life balance
    >major in business
    college is fucking easy, but the first 8-9 years of your career you will be a goddamned slave

    both career paths can max out at very high salaries, and both can develop into a very wide diversity of jobs. Entry-level business jobs are literal slavery though. CS jobs are always comfy.

    Yes, it's completely normal. It's the price you pay for a "dream" job, or a potentially high salary. I got an engineering degree and it was hell. It didn't help that I'm not particularly smart and had to put in way more effort than a lot of my classmates.

      What course? I honestly found CS quite easy. But I'm in Sweden, perhaps we had it more soft.

      You can easily do that even if you think the courses are quite easy. Just look at me.

        Algorithms and system programming are the 2 hard ones. The rest just drown you in work but are easy to get a good grade in.
        I failed to mention I'm not actually a cs major. I did a cs minor and a Meche major which was pretty difficult because I was focused on robotics and controls.

          Didn't have much problem with those tbh. If they are like the ones I had. First year courses? Second for systems? System was with threading and such?
          As for drowning in work, did you have many small assignments and such, homework? We basically had ~3 assignments per course, sometime one and a bigger project instead. Then an exam at the end. No theory homework and such things. No obligatory attendance either. (For most courses)

            It was very theory heavy and intense. For example: I took an AI class and for some of the homeworks we derived gradient descent from scratch, doing the math with pencil and paper. For every CS class at my school they give you a small project every two weeks in addition to normal homework. The project was usually somewhat difficult. There are final exams but also midterms.
            This was at university of illinois at urbana-champaign

              Ah, then it may be the theory that is much more. Also we are usually reading only two courses at the time, for about two months, then two new courses. So you just have one exam at the end of every course. Then with a few bigger assignments/projects for every course, kinda like what you mention, but around three over a course, perhaps a bit bigger then.
              And usually no "homework", just recommended excersices and readings, almost never anything that's obligatory of those, it's just so you should learn for the exam.

              I think in generally we have a bit more free uni education, that you have to take responsibility for studying enough on your own. Not required homeworks and such. Nor required attendance at lectures, which I have heard is common in the US.

      Reading a bit more I should perhaps also mention that GPA doesn't exist here. So perhaps there's some less pressure there. I did decently well in grades though, better than my friends who just cared about passing.

    I study CS here in the UK at a decent (red brick) uni, in my 3rd and final year. Have always been good at exams and done well academically to preface, but I don't find I need to do much at all. 2h a day 5 days a week (if that tbh) will secure me a 1st class degree. I am big on the 80:20 rule and try to be as efficient as possible when studying, only spending my time on the most important and relevant information as per the exam. It has been a breeze so far apart from a couple retarded exams due to professors being retards, but they always get scaled up anyway.

    Are degrees that much harder in America or are you guys just all at top 5 unis? My experience has been almost laughable tbh, a passing grade would require almost no work at all and the top grades don't require that much more.

    Of course I imagine if you're at Oxford, Cambridge, MIT etc it's gonna be a different ball game but this has been my experience anyway.

      You have no assignments, as in programming stuff? That's the thing taking time I find. The only course I have laid that little time on is probably the introduction to programming course, were we made some simple C stuff. Many small assignments.

        Yeah I've had assignments but never large, usually something like 200 lines of code max. They're usually well explained and it's pretty clear what needs to be done. It's usually something like write an algorithm to do x, then alter it do to y and z.

        I've been using chatGPT to work through most of my final year project as well which has probably made things a lot easier to be fair, use chatGPT friend its cheating

          Well those seem much smaller than ours then. So that may be an explanation. We were writing full programs. Our intro course were more like the 200 lines stuff, but a bit shorter probably.

          Now this is spooking me a bit. Didn't believe this would actually be usable. Perhaps the future as a programmer isn't that safe after all.

            >Now this is spooking me a bit
            It's nowhere close to replacing a human (yet) but given the correct prompting and guidance it can save you hours and improve your productivity tremendously. Its able to debug, come up with (intelligent) solutions to your coding issues, suggest how to structure your code and things like that. I imagine it may not be massively useful to a really experienced programmer who has seen it all before, but for anyone with holes in their knowledge its a game changer for sure.

    Failed all my business courses but will hopefully be starting on adderall soon. Thinking I should just change into CS at this point, no? It has way better career prospect but it's actual work as far as courses are concerned. I'm not retarded, I just became super depressed after covid and couldn't focus on work at all, same idea before but grades were only marginally better. Obv. medication isn't the only thing that would help, but i've tried all sorts of other shit and none of it stuck. I'm willing to relearn it all but as it stands I'm in an endless cycle of trial and error hence meds
    I was doubtful going into cs in the first place because it's math heavy and I have no idea if i'd be good at code in the first place so business seemed like the better option.

        It's assembly - you hardcode CPU instructions. While it's implementation dependent, there is no way to make faster code given you know what you're doing. Compilers will never as good as humans at optimization tasks.

          Funny they taught us otherwise. That at like 32-bit machines and higher the compiler will make better optimizations. Or are you talking about more smaller, integrated systems stuff?

            Even Intel compiler still oftentimes struggles with vectorizing loops with shuffle instructions.
            Regardless of architecture btw.
            On complex algorithms, you can surpass compiler optimizations twice or even thrice.
            Even then, for compiler to optimize something, someone has to optimize it manually themselves.
            Eh.

              To be fair, he was a integrated systems professor, not an efficiency/optimization one. He was also quite relaxed about everything and probably mostly worked with that stuff. So yeah.

    In the next 5-10 years coding jobs are going to be automated and ba's, software engineers or project managers are be able to type what they want to make, it will geenerate some code, and them it's a matter of wiring things together.

    This is going to result in a few situations
    1) less people employe overall, meaning only more talented people get jobs (is this you?)
    2) you are paid less
    3) Those that loose work are going to go to manual labour jobs, do you have the capacity for this?

    CS majors are by and large retards. The only worthwhile CS class is Algo/DS and all that shit is much better done by mathchads. CS morons barely understand induction and asymptotic analysis, and if they do it's surface-level understanding because very few of them take real analysis. Protip: anyone who hasn't taken real analysis is a retard. CS is saturating and it will be very entertaining watching the value of that degree going to zero.
