Re: so yeah

You might want to check out the Ethical Hacking Forum instead of Forensics. There are three pinned threads in there with good explanations. Not trying to blow you off, but smarter people than I have added to those threads to help out interested parties.

If you have any specific questions not answered there feel free to ask.

Re: so yeah

Pittsburgh Technical Institute has an information technology major and if u keep a 3.2 GPA for your first year you can major in computer forensics for your sencond year. the gental man i talked to about it said out of the 110 students they had last year 108 of them had jobs within 6 months and the other 2 were waiting for criminal background checks from the CIA. so i'm pretty sure it's a good school lol
