most of you have heard this tip before.

but major in what you're good at, minor in what you love.


I've been considering doing this since getting to college but I'll probably end up not minoring since engineering takes a lot of time as it is lol But I'm making sure I don't lose touch with what I wanted to minor in. Engineering isn't exactly something I love, but I don't know who really "loves" engineering lol But it's something I think I can do pretty well :/ Even though it can get pretty tedious

doesnt matter what you major in for law school. just do the easiest major since GPA plays a huge factor in admissions. the other half is your LSAT score and your major won't prepare you for that directly at least


is mechanical engineering worth getting into? how many years of school will i need to take? and are there any good schools in socal that have a good engineering program? i was thinking about taking this up, but i'm iffy about it

mecheng is fine. you will probably end up working for defense companies as there are very limited spots in other companies like tech. i'd say get your masters mecheng right after ug since you're still in school mode (and its the typical path). my dad did this; had a very nice lifestyle. 40hr weeks, over 6fig easy. then you could get your MBA, move up management and stay or go be an operating partner in private equity or something. $$$

socal schools for mecheng somewhat in order: CIT, UCLA, UCSD, USC, UCSB, UCI

Haha I'm changing majors just because of this. Math takes me forever to do and physics... But apparently if you minor in comp sci you don't need any of the math or physics requirements at my school.

Mechanical Engineering. I graduated high school in 2005 and did a Music minor and a smattering of classes here and there for a couple years, found out I hated the school I was at and dropped out. After a year of figuring out my next move I decided to go to the state university nearby and I'm a year and a half into an amazing major.

tl;dr: better to be 4 years older than your classmates than to be in a major you hate
