I'm planning to major in chemical engineering at UT Austin next year. This is the major that most interests me and seems to have the best prospects after school like working in engineering or working in finance. What troubles me is that even though engineering is something very interesting for me, it's not as lucrative a business as investment banking for example. Since I will be a young guy with little responsibilities coming out of school, working 100 hour weeks in investment banking and making loads of money seems like a great job to have.
Cliffs; Follow my passion in engineering after school or go into investment banking, something I have some interest in, and potentially make a lot of money.
