Submission + - Are Most CS Students Getting a Raw Deal?

Jason Luther writes: "Are most Computer Science students in universities and colleges around the world getting a raw deal? That's what it seems like; especially when you look at all the evidence and realize just how many hundreds of thousands of students are putting long hours and thousands of dollars into studying something that they just won't do well in... Given the disparity amongst the "coding talent" present in different students, is it the universities' duty to inform students of the real hardships encountered in the programming world, and the fact that it's not experience alone that makes a good programmer?"
