I did a lot of drinking and Netflix-watching and hookah smoking throughout undergrad, took fun classes in literature and poetry, and though I had a great time, I really regret how it turned out. Part of why I want to go to law school is to have another crack at it. I recognize that this is a bad reason to go to law school, and I hope you recognize that your reasons are no better
Similar enthusiast background re:coding, startups, etc., though my passion is more indie games than the business side. Similar prestigious undergrad. Similar time out of school, though my waiting was more about figuring out what I wanted to do than struggling with the LSAT.

Yea sure, check these out:

BU Master's program in computer science: http://www.bu.edu/cs/graduate/masters-program/
Penn Master of Computer and Information Technology (MCIT): http://www.cis.upenn.edu/grad/mcit/
Columbia Postbaccalaureate Studies program: http://ce.columbia.edu/postbaccalaureat ... r-science#
And of course there's always DevBootCamp, HackerSchool, CodeAcademy, etc (as you're already aware of), but they're not degree-granting.

Thank you beepboop. I knew there's people out there outside of the super sarcastic, crass-ass mold TLS seems to attract a lot of. Ironically, a lot of these snarky types actually provide really good info. They're just really... insensitive and arrogant. Or maybe that's just what typing behind a screen of anonymity will getcha!
