Hey everyone, I come here seeking some advice. I'm 33 years old and I hate my job. I've been working in car sales for 6 years now. The money is great, and I used to be really good at it, however these days I just can't find the motivation to keep doing this job. I feel like I'm literally doing NOTHING with my life. This job is just a means of income for me, but I want something more. I want SCIENCE! So I've decided to go back to school, and I know it's very late in life to do such a thing, but I'm going for it anyway. When it comes to science, I'm most interested in cosmology, but I just can't see where that would be applicable to actually making a living. That being said, I've decided to pursue a degree in Aerospace Engineering. When I was a young and rebellious high school student, math came pretty easily to me. I squandered this gift by spending the next 5 years after high school working as an auto mechanic instead of going to college. Now that I'm mature enough to understand what my true interests are, I'm really excited to give college a try. I used to be smart, so I'm hoping I can kick-start my brain and get back into school mode without too much difficulty. My question is this: Will it do me much harm to start off at community college instead of at a 4-year university? In the interest of trying to save money, I've already started the process to get enrolled at the local CC, but will this hurt my future prospects of getting a job? And would I be making a mistake by going to San Jose State University's school of aerospace engineering? I'm reluctant to relocate because I NEED to work and earn a living while going to school. Mainly, I'd like to be as hirable as possible upon graduation. Also, are there any entry level jobs available to an uneducated-but-clever professional such as myself that can help translate into an engineering job in the future? Continuing with my current job will be difficult since I'm working 40+ hours a week, but I'm too old to be distracted by partying and I'm single with no kids so I really have no problem focusing my time at home to studying. But yeah, are there any other jobs I might want to look for while going to school that might be less time consuming? I know that was a long-winded post, but I thank you all in advance for any advice or tips or discussion regarding the topic.
