I have to admit I'm jealous you had such a diverse exposure to programming paradigms.

I agree it's a problem. I've always found it odd that the AP test is in Java for example. I would imagine pseudo code would be a better choice for a conceptual test.

Those of us, like myself, that opted into the compiler design classes had a quite a few more to play with.

I guess the problem are those universities that tend to be more focused on "languages to get a job" than doing the real work of an university.
