How many thought college was it but didn't make it

I feel that college is no longer for me. I can do good when it comes to academics but for some reason it doesn't seem to be working out. My major is mechanical engineer. It's not like im dumb or not capable of doing it so theres pretty much no excuse of me not going to college and achieving that goal but for some reason i'm sick of it. My dad was telling me if it isn't working out find a technical school...my mom said not too many give a shit about technical schools and that i won't be making the salary i want at least 90thou per year. I am now considering to switch my major to EMS/ EMT. They get out of school after 2yrs of hard work and start making 60 per year. I'm not much into saving people more into "bustin guns" if you know what i mean but i think that if i do that i will prob feel better since i'll be out of college in 2 years.

Re: How many thought college was it but didn't make it

HAHA please dont tell me this is all about getting out of college the fastest!!! Or is this about your particular major that your in right now? Those are 2 completely different things!! My best advice is to not make a decision before you have thought that out first and because you want to be out to school in 2 years rather than 4. Pretty crazy thinking if you ask me. And I know you just didnt wake up today and be like.. hey I hate college.. or my major... lets change it! If it was me Id stick with whatcha got... for the plain fact that, thats a 30k difference in salaries. Some people dont make that in a year haha. Im one of them right now. Granted Im still in school to.. but thats besides the point.

i already dislike college, for me feels like high school... but shorter, more repetitive and more freedom. but i know staying there WILL pay off in the long run!!!!!

Re: How many thought college was it but didn't make it

of course it will pay off in the long run but how do you keep that "i want to do this" spirit up if you know what i mean.

when you have a car to drive, go for a long drive around the REALLY expensive homes in your area... works for me, especially when they have the cars and women outside!!!!!

Re: How many thought college was it but didn't make it

Stick it out. Just having a 4 year degree gives you so many more possibilities. Alot of people I know work in fields that they didn't major in, but just having the degree got them the job.

Re: How many thought college was it but didn't make it

Yeah stick it out, trust me it will pay for itself in the end.

I find it hard to believe EMT's make that much money. Our EMT's do not even make half of that.

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.
