In the current breed of CS majors, it seems to be taking a downward trend.
Overwhelmingly a bunch of males that want good jobs.  That's not a bad
thing, per se, but in my inconsequential worldview, it's a pretty sad
main-factor for how to spend out the rest of your life.  As a result, most
of them don't do CS too well, because it's not their passion.
