I would not have minded the back-end oriented classes so much, except for one thing: I did not learn C#.Net, nor VB.Net, nor ASP.Net, or COBOL, or any language I took on line nor most I took on campus. We used GUIs to program, which meant, well, we didn't really learn the language itself. As I said in a letter (this was about my Java class), "I flung keywords about" until I got something that resembled what I wanted.

My recommendation is the "school of hard knocks". Find a private sector fast-paced company like AKQA. That is the best learning environment for modern technology.
