Brash topic I know but somewhat valid in my case. Here is my problem.currently I am 25 with a 2 yr in auto body repair that has decided to forgo all previous training in an effort to pursue something that is a true passion of mine. So I quit work about 3yrs ago started going to a community college and after about a year of math started what was a freshmen semester of engineering. as of last semester my tech gp was 2.5 which is not good enough for what I want to do which is go to the U of MN twin cities since they have a good program and is local to me such that i can live with my parent so that i only have to work part time. the probel is this after last semester which consisted of Calc 4, Physics w/calc2 and O Chem ended up with 2 d's and a B in physics. I should of had a C in Chem but didn't even take the final since i decided to concentrate on math(since i really didn't want to take that class twice) and retake O chem in the spring for at least a B which was impossible at that point. Unfortunately I ended up with a D in Math and so i have to retake that and chem. My question is this. I have tried really hard to get to the point Im at right now. When I was young i was diagnosed with dyslexia and what was called a vestibular processing disorder. Some of it may have healed or diispprove that i have this condition. I have no issue functioning in society due to this but functioning is not my goal excelling is. I'm worried that although i can take these classes next semester and pass the problem still lies. No matter how hard I try I just don't learn quick enough or or understand everything or what ever it is that makes a successful engineer, and even if i can make my way through the U of MN with a bio-engineering degree I still wont be capable of makeing the kind of living, and advancement i want in a field full of so many bright people who are the ones setting the curve that I obviously don't. I realize dyslexic or not I have to prove myself as capable as the next guy and after last semester where i think i put more effort in than any previous semester I'm not sure If it is a question of whether i tried but whether Im capable, competitively which is where it really counts. sortof a loaded a question I know but maybe if you have any pointers or advice on where to go even if i manage to get the degree or how to focus the degree to better optimize some of my inabilities that would be appreciated. Quick edit to this post I know I mentioned the Dyslexia card only for the purpose of helping people understand that Im proud of how far I have gotten for something i was told is not easy for a dyslexic person but am worried that it will hold me back from something more. Also reconizing the dyslexia is no excuses for me to pass fail or get a job, I have never really brought it up to a teacher nor do i get assistance for it. If i cant do it on my job on my own i will be never be valuable to a company.
