I've been working on my 2 year transfer degree at the local community college in order to head to a 4 year for mechanical engineering. After a few chem classes (which are req'd for ME anyway), I find it really fascinating and kind of fun. I've started toying with the idea of switching to a pre-chem transfer degree, which would basically be the same except I'd take more chem classes instead of more math above Calc 4. ME has been my goal ever since I decided to go back to school, but chem engineering just sounds more interesting. I would just go ahead and switch, but everyone I talk to, including professors, say chemical engineering is the "hardest major ever". It looks like a lot of sources online agree, too. Is it really that hard? I mean ME isn't exactly a cake-walk. I also notice that ChE get paid a bit more than ME's. Thoughts? PS. I don't have to decide until next year, I'm just bouncing around ideas. And FWIW, I'm not the smartest guy ever, but I work hard enough to maintain a healthy GPA. Thanks for any advice!
