Why go to college?
Most of you will have to work for the next 30 to 40 years.  You should find a job that you want to do instead of settling for a job that you have to do.  Going to college will give you the skills to get an awesome job.  http://salarysurfer.cccco.edu/SalarySurfer.aspx

Why take a Computer Science course?
What's in your pocket or purse--a smart phone. 

How much time do I need to spend on a programming class?  I searched the Web to see what other colleges are recommending:
"Remember the general guideline that for every credit hour of an engineering class, you should plan to spend three hours outside of class on that course during the week."
     --http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/academics/support/success-tips
Expect to spend about 3 hours on work outside class per week for every academic credit"
     --http://www.engineering.cornell.edu/academics/undergraduate/assistance/peer/guide/choosing.cfm
"It has been said that for every hour in lecture, a student should spend at least three hours studying outside of class."
    --http://essap.tamu.edu/pdf/nsc/NSC-Engineering%20Calculus%20final.pdf
"Our published expectation for Engineering at the University of Michigan is 3 hours outside of class for every credit hour"
