How is a main degree from CMU math for quant trading

I was recently accepted to CMU for the math program and want to get a double major in CS. Will it hurt for quant programs that I have a BS in math and not BS in CS, even though I will have a double major. I could transfer but its a bit of a headache and I will pursue if I am doing well in the CS classes.
