tom1607307597 Posted July 2, 2008 Share Posted July 2, 2008 Well first i wanted to start things off by explaining the pickle I'm in. I am a sophomore, almost junior, at my university. The last 2 years I've been taking courses for a mechanical engineering major. It started off good, but these last few semesters I've been doing really bad in my classes. These classes were hard, but I also just didn't feel motivated to do any of the work. Maybe I just really hate all the math and science they put you through. I just know it's time to switch majors but my dad keep nagging me about how great job security is for engineers. I've seriously thought about switching majors even before that because I didn't expect to do well, hopefully to something easier. My university doesn't seem to offer what I'm looking for. For example, I was thinking physical therapy, but the closest they have to physiology. General Biology or biology with a medical concentration was another thing I picked out but I know I don't want to pursue a graduate degree. A technician, or even engineering technician job of some kind sounded cool too but they don't offer anything like that here. To make things more complicated I thought about transferring to another university, possibly get a change of scenery and maybe find something that really motivates me. They even have an college exchange program that would let me go to a college in lets say New York or California, just as long as I have 2.5 gpa or higher. Taking this engineering path though has screwed me over though, as of this last semester I have a 1.92 gpa. Transferring to another university or even another college on campus seems almost impossible. I feel trapped since I will have to pay back all my loans if I drop out. I don't seem to have too many options left from where I stand. What else can I do? Link to comment
