I apologize if this is not the appropriate site or the appropriate type of question, but I didn't know where else to ask. If it is, please inform me to delete the question.
I took a year in college and wasn't ready and so did horribly. However, A couple of years later now I am definitely ready to go back. I've been self-studying mathematics and a bit of programming and plan on starting to study more in depth topics in computer science. My plan is to go to a community college for a year or two then transfer to Rutgers to get an M.A. in mathematics while self-studying computer science in particular machine learning and computer vision. My question is this. Is this at all practical. What are the chances of success? I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket and end up failing because of a questions that I could have asked now and have to end up working as a cashier at McDonalds for the rest of my life. If you can offer me any advice it would be greatly appreciated.
