Well with the help of PF, other people from real life, and lots of hard work I've finally kicked high-school and am currently in my first week of college. I managed to get into engineering, which I figured was what I wanted to do...however a rather large but comes up. There's this massive feeling of...bad. I sit though the intros to the courses, and the sheer load looks huge. I knew engineering was going to be hard, and I've had the "scare the students" approach taken lots of times before. Only thing is this time the speeches aren't geared to do that, and they're doing the job. Is this just normal fear for being dumped into a massive load straight out of high school with its' four courses per semester to the daunting seven I'm in now?
