I was a mediocre high school student--3.3 GPA. However, I got into a pretty good engineering school, Cal Poly SLO. I sailed through my first year, but crashed so hard on my second year (failed 4 classes and got kicked out); I failed not because the classes were hard, but because I have a very poor studying habit and a chronic procrastination disease.
Now I'm going to a community college, at the end of this school year--one more semester to go--my cumulative GPA of all attended colleges would be 2.5. I would have no problems bringing them up if I'd willing to spend another year in college.
But here are the problems:
-I have finished taking all the lower division engineering courses (i.e. statics, dynamics, circuits, etc...) and all the calculus and physics sequences that a JC can offer.
-I couldn't think of any classes relevant to my engineering career that I can still take.
I am very much interested in an engineering career, and going to college... but what classes to take?
Is college over for me? what are my other options?
I thought of joining the military to get a new perspective on life, then go back to college, but then, the same conundrum will arise: what classes to take?
If you have a similar experience in life, I would love to hear about it. My inspirations are depleting, and I'm so lost.
