It's time to register for classes again and I'm afraid I have a slight dilemma. My major, currently, is Physics. I enjoy Physics and I have no wish to transfer out of it, but I have no interest whatsoever in doing pure physics as a career (research and teaching aren't my style, neither are the other common options) so I was planning to get a second major in mechanical Engineering. Everything would've worked just fine except our MechE department (University of Illinois) is absolutely full. They admitted too many new undergrads and so they're thinking about closing transfers for an indefinite amount of time. This is worrying because I'm starting sophomore year soon and since I have not a single GenEd left to take, I need to start the specialized science and math classes soon (I'm currently taking the basics, so it's not not an issue yet but they will run out soon and if I don't decide, I could be here much longer than I need to be). What should I do? I'm meeting with an adviser from MechE but it is the most difficult department in the university to transfer into and if I don't get in, I don't know what to do. I'll be left high and dry with a degree in an area that I never wanted to pursue a career in. I suppose I could consider another engineering field but that option is a last resort. Thank you everyone!
