Well I'm senior in HS with a poor GPA(3.0) and I'm kind of a slacker and don't study much but I like learning new things but get frustrated by reviewing the same things over and over again(too the point where I can completely fail a test because I just didn't care muich). I also am kind of forgetful(lost a few points on math quizs because I forgot a power or missed a sign but did the work correctly) and I also easily get distracted by wanting to know too much things when I don't fully understand the basics such as how can things move in a vacuum if no forces are acting upon an object? I also like having fun(sometimes alittle too much). Anyways I'd love to be an aerospace engineer but would also like to know that when I get free time I can fix up cars like a mechanic but without the need for one ad also would like to know that I could build a jet engine solo if I had the funds. I'd also like to build car engines and modify them. Thats where my problem comes in I can't really narrow down the list. I heard from a college fair rep that I can dual major in ME/AE and get a dual degree but I was wondering is that easier than double majoring or harder? Is a dual degree worth it? I also don't want to just be a mechanic even though I'd love to fix and repair things if I gained the knowledge how but I'd like to know that when I'm done with work and have a couple free hours/days I can fix up a car or begin working on it. Will i struggle in Engineering with my current habits and could a still get some free time with whe I'm doing engineering to meet family and friends? What are my chances of getting good Aid and getting into Georgia tech or Boston U? I know its a lot but most reps I ask at college fairs tell me they either can't answer the question because they don't have enough info or to use the net.
