Greetings, I'm currently a month away from obtaining my undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering. My school (Located in CA) carries a decent rank within the engineering community and, from my experience, has a fairly solid curriculum. My issue is that I spent my first two years as an undergraduate taking ME courses to satisfy my CE prereqs, which is pretty common. When I got into my third year, I really disliked civil, but decided to go with it because I had a job lined up after college. Fast forward to now: my lack of motivation has really caused my GPA to plummet. I'm down to a 2.75 overall GPA. I've noticed that my best grades (almost all A's) came from my ME courses, and obviously my lowest grades (C's) are from CE. Because of this, I'm considering getting my master's in ME. Obviously, the issue is my GPA. I'm considering taking extension courses at a UC school, possibly UCI, and attempting to get the best grades possible. If I was able to get good grades, would it be possible to get into a UC school? Right now I don't even meet the minimum GPA requirements, but I know for a fact that I can do well in graduate ME courses if given the opportunity. Has anyone gone this route, or done something similar? I honestly feel lost and alone right now.
