I don't want to bore anyone so long story, very, very short:
- This is for the Computer Science / Software Engineering industry.
- I am combating laziness and extreme procrastination due to depression.
- Not doing very well in my studies as a result.
Based on the two above I wonder if a degree with some tainting in the first year of my units would still be enough to get me a good job (in the industry).
Is experience worth more than my grades alone?
I say this because I often find that I do better by doing than just by reading the course material for Discrete Structures or Databases etc....
Should I not worry about my (past) bad grades and make the best of the situation and just develop a good portfolio?
I want to fix what I have gotten myself into, and I hope someone in the industry or with some kind of related experience can give me some insight.
