Hi, I've been lurking here for quite a bit for a while now (reading old threads, stickies, etc.). I figured it's time I finally make a PF account to join the community. A little about myself. I'm currently a 6yr student (I know...) at a medium size state university close to my home. I graduated HS, went to college for a semester as a Criminal Justice student, dropped out, joined the military, and now I'm in the reserves with 6 months left on my contract. I went back to school and realized pursuing CJ wouldn't be for me. Then pursued a Biochemistry degree in hopes of getting into med school. Realized I didn't like all the memorization and didn't want to be in school forever. Took my first physics class, fell in love mainly because there is little to nil memorization in physics. I then found out I had enough math (I took more math as my electives as I realized math was a strong point) and gen ed to transfer to the 3-2 engineering/physics program so that I only have one year left for the physics portion of the portion (in which I'm completing this following academic year). The problem for me lies in when I transfer to a small private university to pick an engineering program. Originally, the 3-2 program had two schools to transfer to (a large state university and the small private) but because I transferred into the program I'm only allowed to go to the small private. They only offer a BS Engineering or BS Mechanical Engineering. I have no idea what I want to do in life yet, but the reason why I chose this degree path was because I am getting too old to constantly be flipping around majors and I need to start working so I can provide a life for myself. I have no interests in anything but science, I wanted a well-paying job, I don't want to do research, I don't want to teach, I don't want to go to graduate school to get a PhD to find a decent job *yet* (so this eliminated Chemistry and Bio degrees), and I figured I have no problem with the math are the reasons why I chose this path. At the moment I am leaning towards ME because from what I've read, it is the most flexible. But I have no idea what I want to do in the future with this degree to be honest. I also know that there are unconventional careers for physics majors (but they do not appeal to me as well). I am currently looking into aerospace which seems to be the only one appealing to me or maybe medical physics (should've pursued my physician dreams younger if anything...). Outside of academics, I like playing sports mainly when I have time or bsing with friends. I also enjoy traveling and one day hope to live outside the US (I've been looking into grad schools in Europe as of late). Summary: Undergrad student has no idea what he is doing in life with his degree. I apologize for wall of text but I included more so that you guys are able to see my strengths/weaknesses. I just transferred my major beginning of last semester and was thrown in the loop with no real advisement (my current advisor is not really that helpful to say the least). I also feel as if everyone has a leg up in their engineering undergrad career (building things, learning how to program, etc.) meanwhile I'm just f-ing off. Cheers.
