<p>I'm in a huge dilemma and in need of any opinions, facts, stories, etc. that you guys have for me!</p>
<p>Well I am absolutely in love with sports. I like knowing how the body works, how to make it better, and how to prevent from injuries and such. So i started looking in to Physical therapy and Sports medicine, primarily as a physican.</p>
<p>However, I also love building things, knowing how things work, and the mechanics in order to make things run smoothly. I am a very analytical thinkker, with my strong points being physics, Calculus, anything dealing with math. So I looked more into mechanical engineering.</p>
