Main Question or Discussion Point

Im a hgh school student, I need help to define what should I go for. I was interested in aerospace engineering , but then I looked at astrophysics and I thought it would it. But now its time for filling applications and I am really scared.I dont know of I should go for a physics major, an aeropsace engineering or anything else. Besides my dad insists to check on jobs amd as o heard jobs in astrophysics are decreasing at Nasa and having a major in physics is not the best for a job, and an aerospace engineering degree is not the best but as an engineering major is more flexible. Any suggestions or comments will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Alex

I have the same problem. It is a horrible thing to choose knowing that there are big consequences in the future. I believe it is one of the things that every students struggle with.


I cannot tell you much about the areas you're considering. But I can tell you what I am doing at the moment.

I am writing small stories. Those stories include what my life would be like if I picked to do something. How it would constrain me? What would be the consequences of changing my career path? How much of the skills I will have will be transferable? Just go with the flow and ask yourself question. Be honest with yourself and you will find the answer.


Good luck,
