    Engineering from Nust in pakistan whereas economics from lums is ranked 1st by qs rankings in pakistan..it all depends on your aptitude and interests..scope is made by ypu,not by your field

    @Aysha2404 but thinking of the future, does Economics have a better scope in Pakistan or Engineering?

    @neekastic as I have told u before,I am from fsc pre medical(u know our country rush after medical field) .Even than,I was recommended by almost everyone having fururistic approach that the coming age is of economics and computer science because we lack experts in that field.....my acquaintance s have bachelors in economics from lums and they are earning 6 /7 lac per month .and after masters in public policy(MPP)you can earn 15/20 lac easily....depending on your professionalism ofcourse....another interesting fact is that economics is the bestest way to go for civil service.....a substantial number of civil servants in Pakistan are from economics background(lums students have a lion share in CSs seats)...the choice is yours....I dont know about engineering much

    @Aysha2404 Btw what are you doing? Did you pursue economics and your colleagues who are earning after bachelors from LUMS, what kind of jobs are they into ?

    Woahhh. You’ve got way too good scores man.
  • neekasticneekastic Registered User Posts: 211 Junior Member
    Ik it’s pretty weird of a question but I’m v confused so I need help with a decision. Ik I’m interested in Econ. I’ve taken a short course on EdX as well. But my brother wants me to go for engineering as he’d be aiding me for my masters abroad and get a job like his. Should I risk an already promised thing for my interest? Like I don’t even know what happens after I graduate from LUMS.
  • neekasticneekastic Registered User Posts: 211 Junior Member
    And also, I’ve 93% in Matric, 80% in Fsc pre engineering and 1300 on SAT with a total of 19 in the essay. Do you think I would get in?

  • Aysha2404Aysha2404 Registered User Posts: 22 Junior Member
    @neekastic idk much but you will excel in your career inly when you will have interest???how long can you can go against your interests.....I also faced such a dilemma....so just pray to Allah to guide you what is in your best interest..inly Allah knows at what you can excel.(lums se acceptance usi main aye jo apke liye behtareen h)
