I've been studying mechanical engineering this past year. It's been going good. Except now I realize I should have gone for a nuclear engineering degree at another university. On my current schedule, I could graduate with a degree in mechanical engineering 3 years with some nuclear classes thrown in. (3 years due to community college and AP credit in high school) Transferring would mean 4 years for graduation and also tons of money lost. On the other hand, the classwork would be a bit better. In addition, I have yet to have a laboratory or internship experience and I don't know how I'm gonna get one of these anytime soon considering I've never held any (paying) job anytime in my life. So 4 years would give me more time to gain experience. I'm also interested in studying nuclear engineering in grad school and I know that you can't just say you have a 4.0 you need at least a year or so experience on a legit research team. Any ideas?
