Okay, I had posted before about possibly pursing a degree in electrical engineering. However, I have a confession to make. My only reason for that, is that I would be able to attend school locally, and not have to pay high costs for room and board if I moved away. However, if I could choose anything at all, I would much rather study something such as astronomy/planetary science. Now, I fully acknowledge that this degree probably isn't as "useful" in terms of finding actual employment, as is the engineering degree, but it's just where I feel my real interest lies. Given the choice, would choose to save money and get a degree locally, but have it be in something other than your true interest, or would you rather study something you definitely have an interest in, but have to deal with moving away and paying much higher costs? I mean, I'm starting late at age 24, and frankly the whole idea of living on a college campus makes me sick. Just looking for opinions, as I'm torn on what I should do. Thanks.
