I got a general Associates and now think it was the wrong route. What do I do now?
Hi there, I'm kind of lost about what direction to head and think I may have ruined my chances.
When this term is over (in Dec 2012) I will obtain my Associates of Science Degree. I took a bunch of random courses to fulfill the requirements because I wasn't sure what I wanted to major in.
Well, I think I want to major in Environmental Science. Now this is where I am completely lost... There are about 65 credits worth of BI, CH, and MTH I can take at my current college, which is ideal and cheaper since it's a community college. However, some of these courses have prerequisites I'd need to complete to even get in them. So it'll be more than 65 credits total.... I SHOULD have taken this route for my associates of science!! It's useless now, I'm on financial aid, so I can't just "start over"... I just completed 91 credits of random stuff for this degree and now I'd have to take basically another 80 something or just transfer to the university and pay more $$ if my financial aid doesn't allow me to continue at my community college.
Now, on financial aid and am at like 310% of my pell grant (half way used up) and am an independent student using loans.
Was it a waste?
I'm so losted as to what to do. I have appointments with an advisor in a week, but am seeking more insight to my situation. I appreciate any feedback. Thanks.
