So I'm going through the first year of grad school and I've figured out its not for me. I did alright academically first semester and this second semester I've figured out alot about my skills, abilities, interests and limitations. What I'm studying isn't really what I want to do with the rest of my life!
a MS thesis engineering student, 1st yr
taking 3 classes, 1 for research, 2 others general classes
1 month left of classes, pretty much on the verge of failing them
So I have an advisor starting the 2nd semester and am doing a little bit of research. I'm not really interested in finishing my MS degree but I have 6 more years to do it in case I want to make myself look more valuable or somehow change my mind. I'm not doing well in my classes and I'm just not interested in them at all.
Should I drop my classes? All of them?
How should I tell my advisor that I'm gonna drop out? Its kind of weird!
What should I do next? I don't have any jobs lined up, economy is in the dumps, I have several ideas of what I want to do but not sure where I'm headed!
