That's definitely true. I started studying CS two years ago on one of the best Maths/CS departments in eastern Europe, last year I started Maths and I expect to get both Bachelor's next year. It was pretty hard, especially the exam sessions, but it was also a lot of fun -- definitely worth it. Now I'm an intern in Santa Clara and it feels like holiday.

My advice is, if you're not sure whether you'll be able to do something, don't hesitate -- most of the time nothing bad happens if you fail, and if your case is different, the greater your motivation will be.
