Hey guys, this is my first post on here. I'm a second-year physics major at a large public university in the U.S., and I am considering changing my major to mechanical engineering (with a physics minor. I faced this decision at the same time last year. If I were to switch I would have to stay in college for an extra semester, which is probably ok for me. As I have seen on these forums several times, one of the main reasons I am considering this is the lack of career options for phycisists. I think I might have difficulty getting into grad school, as my gpa is slightly below 3.0. I have always been very interested in physics and astrophysics, but I think I would also like M.E. I have always liked building stuff. Also I had an internship at a biophysics lab last summer. Both programs are relatively good at my university. Any advice?
