You do have some valid concern about aerospace but with computer science I think you'll be ok.
I definitely know what you mean about wanting to be done. It's taking me 6 years to finish my undergrad and I can't freaking wait to be done.
I understand the taking forever for undergrad. *shudder* I'm working on year 6, but I have an internship that is extending my time.

Decided to transition to comp sci to get a master's degree, this took a year to be able to even apply...pre-req classes + GRE. Now roughly 3 years dedicated to comp sci, my road of academia is ending, and I cannot wait to apply my skill set to something useful. The only thing I'm worried about is the instability of the aerospace industry nowadays.
What will you be doing in Aerospace? O.o Comp Sci generally focuses on programming and computer aided research.
