I'm currently about to graduate from a community college with an A.A. in pre engineering and I will transfer to a local public university to study for a bachelors in mechanical. Overall, I am really depressed for a number of reasons. The most important being that I will have to move out of my parents house and into an apartment near the university. The problem is that I don't really have the financial means to do that and yet I will have to do it anyways. I don't want to struggle financially while I study for such a difficult degree. The last thing I need is to go to school hungry and stressed out. I've tried my best to apply for scholarships, but I'm not sure if I will actually receive any and my gpa is only a 3.2.
Another problem is the difficulty of the classes I have been taking. Calculus 1-3 as well as physics, chemistry, etc... I'm not sure if I'm smart enough to continue. What if the gap in difficulty between cc and university is greater than I anticipated? Then I am screwed. Anyways, I meet with an adviser from the university in a week and I'm not sure if I should explain my situation to her or not.
