Advise appreciated: Somewhat lost in life.

Here's the quick story...

I'm 23, and went to work full-time after graduating high-school. (Mistake, I know).

Part of me thought of becoming a pilot, and in fact I did at least earn my private certificate this past summer. But, the way flying is, it's a long road financially, and once you do get a job, the pay is somewhat meager. All in all, I think I'd rather fly for recreational purposes. So, doing it for a living is currently on the back burner.

What I do know is that I WILL, without question, be starting college next fall.

I'm seriously considering going after electrical engineering. I know I am smart enough to do it, if I apply myself. That I know.

My question is, what can I realistically expect, as far as initial pay, if I do obtain a BS in EE???

I just feel like I need to be making around $60,000/year, not the ****ty$35,000 I'm making now.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks you.
