Is a MIS degree useless? I was trying to go for finance, but the more I think about it, I don't think it makes sense. Since I suck at math, maybe I might do better a programmer. I think that Management Information Systems seems like a good fit. I like business, and I like computers (including programming), and it seems like most openings say CS or Information System degrees. Does this mean CIS as well as MIS? Do you think this degree would do well? Pr is it a BS degree like Ecommerce degrees?

I dont know the diff between MIS and CIS, but I programmed computers from age 12, and I can tell you with certainty that you in particular will do well as a programmer.
That's the field for you.
For programming, your degree doesn't really matter. It's what you know. Most college programs will not teach you sufficient programming (even for CS majors) so you're going to have to learn by yourself on the side. C++, Java, Ruby, etc.
I am a terrible person.
I'd recommend getting some experience with QA automation & TDD (test driven development). See: Jasmine, JSUnit, Cucumber, Selenium, etc. I don't mean working in QA or as a QA automation engineer, but having some experience with these tools would make your resume look better when applying for developer positions.
