Doesn't matter. You don't even need to do a degree these days to get a
job. If you show a flair for computers you'll learn a lot more by
yourself. Do a 2 year cert course in the CIT and get some experience
during the extra 2 years that a degree would have taken.

Probably better than CIT right now, but that's only because they have
Linux workstations and offer work placement. CIT has gone completely NT,
though you can telnet to an AIX box, or at least you could last year.
CIT offers work placement too which used to be touted as an advantage
over UCC. When it comes to UNIX development CIT is screwed IMO.. (yeah,
I went there, it's a great course otherwise!)

Not unless you want to move away from home.

All the major colleges and universities have permanent connections to
the Internet, but shared between several thousand students all going to
hotmail.com it's slow most of the time. (Apart from late at night and
weekends if you're so inclined.)
