Personally i think it's better to convert. Because I realized that they made a huge mistake with the name of the major being CM. Then it's like almost everyone who heard it thought it's from FASS and I can't code.

Companies don't usually update themselves with those fancy new names of title. They just state the field. And computer science is the most general followed by information systems.

Not really, can't expect companies to be kept updated about what each major means for every universities in the world.

Actually already had such an experience when I was applying for internship, they didn't ask me about what does Communication and Media means, then in the end got rejected and a friend who is in CS got in. I think one of the factor is that it's a programming job and unle

Even more so after CM is merged, then they won't even have anywhere to find out that does CM mean anymore unless they call the school up, which they are even more unlikely to do.

My boss and most of my colleagues don't know got such course called info sys. (They thought info sys is some new rubbish course) They only know either comp sci or comp eng.

The only dude who is somehow aware of information system thought I am from smu and only know business stuffs.

Then again, I was thinking if I should convert at all and whether it really matters, since I'm going to get a masters from CMU or MIT right after my degree anyways so what's the name for my undergrad major won't really matter then.
