Mechanical Engineering/Engineering in general SUCCESS STORIES!? Hi, I'm Aaron, a sophomore mechanical engineering student at Pitt. I have struggled tremendously with my grades and trying to get everything straightened out academically. Right now, my cummulative gpa is a 2.05. I have been connecting with my professors, doing extra-curriculars, and even tried study groups, but NOTHING works. Can someone who has been down my road please help me understand how to get over these adversities? I don't see myself in any other major, and I really want to be an engineer. Thanks.
