I would like to get a Master's of Engineering and work in the industry, but for a number of reasons, I don't think I am going to be very good at it. I worry that I am deluding myself into thinking that I am good at something I am not. I'd like to get other people's thoughts on whether I this is really a good path for me... While I have a high GPA, it is inflated, and my professors make the classes very easy. They practically tell us exactly what is going to be on the tests, and homework is graded rather leniently. I have gotten A plusses in some of my upper level classes, but, in reality, I don't feel like I know the material well (btw, would grad schools/employers view A+s suspiciously?). When I look at the homework assignments other schools give, I can't even get the problems started; I feel that my problem solving skills are poor. I have trouble getting work done in the lab and am unable to think clearly. I think deep down I am afraid of hard work and success. I am always hesitant to do things in the lab because I don't really know what I am doing. I feel like I need permission to do things. I seriously doubt I could do a thesis. I have a terrible memory. I can't remember basic things from earlier classes. I am not good at communicating or socializing. I don't chat with people in the lab since they are probably really busy and whatnot. I have trouble understanding verbal instructions. I am sorry this is really negative, but there it is. There are probably steps I could take to improve some of the issues I've listed, and I have definitely tried, but I never seem to be able to make progress. Part of this may come from working on a research project that isn't a good fit for me, but I have to finish out the semester. I might add more to this later, but this is all I can come up with for now. Thanks in advance.
