Never sell yourself short.
+1 that

Just an average guy here, very rebellious phase through high-school. Crappy grades.... Ended up registering as Liberal arts, easy to get in, freedom to take any classes i want. Had to make a lot more effort than most to catch up. It was a pain in the ass but it was do-able.

Doesn't matter to me what you decide to do, but don't sell yourself short.

Just an aside... one of the most successful guys i know can't spell for ****, if he writes me a note i have to call him to find out what he meant. Never went to college, doubt he even finished high school, but no one who knows him will ever call him stupid. Takes a few risks and has just the right skills and spirit to make them pan out. He built a trucking business. Makes a ton more than i ever did.

Ya never know.

i was kidding my spelling is really sad.

i have so many friends who graduated with me and they are stuck also. i feel that moving on while im still in my 20's may be a good choice.

im not real bright, (hence the spelling) i dont think i could make it through any type of engineering. i want to, i want to do something like EE, but i dont know if im smart enough. seriously.
the last thing i need to do is waste loan money. what about buisness management, something i could get done on line?
Actually bad spelling doesn't mean you are not intelligent, it means you can't spell.

"Everyone who has difficulty with spelling words correctly can derive some comfort from knowing that some very good writers have been notoriously bad spellers. It's also comforting to bad spellers to know that this business of spelling seems to have little to do with intelligence. It has more to do with how we remember things. Some people, once they've seen a word spelled correctly, will never misspell that word again. Those are the people who, if you ask them how to spell a word, will first say, "Wait a second. Let me write it down." If you are not a strong visual learner, but learn in other ways, you will have to learn some other tricks to become a strong speller."

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Something having to do with the medical field. With all the baby boomers getting to retirement age the field is going to need LOTS and LOTS of people. Something like an X-Ray tech......

Sounds to me like you are looking for a definite major purpose.

Some stuff to look at.

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill $8 at the book store

If you don't like books look at:

Your Right to be Rich by Napoleon Hill. It is his lectures I think I purchased mine for $30.

It has helped me a lot.

I am currently a college student in my last year majoring in Mechanical design. My hobby actually led to my career choice.I have yet to have a regret about my choice... well, perhaps the nightmare that was statics, but was necessary to take.

How about being a Head Psychology nurse working at a mental health hospital? That's what my Wife is and she makes $60.00 an hour. She also does a few days of overtime each week, not too bad at $720.00 a day for overtime and $480.00 a day for regular pay for a total of $1,200.00 a day. There is always a need for Nurses State wide. How about being a Certified RN Anesthetist? The average salary is $173,000 a year.

you guys are giving me good ideas. it is sad my whife and i both have bs degrees and we make crap on top of paying student loans. sometimes i wish i never went, actually i wish i never went. i want to support my family and enjoy my hobby. if i did not go to college ( see that i wont ms that one again) i would not have hundreds of dollars to pay back each month with the income from a job i could have had without a degree. also, my heli would not be sitting for months because i cant fix it. now the only thing to do to get ahead of these stupid loans is to go back to school and get something that will lead to an actually good check. trying to be a pilot is not even worth it unless you got to the military. so i dont know.you aint crashin you aint learnin

I always tell people to major in what you want to do regardless of money. Ultimately if you are happy and enjoy what you do the money would be there. Now if you are strictly looking for big $$$ I would go pharmacy. My wife is a pharmacist but works in a corporate environment. She said her Purdue alumni mag listed the average salary of last years' class at something ridiculous like $110k.

For me, I work in IT and have for almost 20 years. If I had it to do over I would have stuck in engineering and gotten a more hands on job. I would also have to give med school a serious look. When I was in college I wanted to go to med school but didn't want to be in school that long. Now that I'm older I realize that extra few years of school was nothing in the overall grand scheme of things.

Another thing I forgot to mention. You don't necessarily need a degree to get a good paying job. I don't (although all I need is that damn speech class to finish mine ) and I make a very good living in IT. If you have any interest in computers you can get very good jobs with just some Microsoft or other industry certifications. Cisco is a good one also. You can either study on your own or pay to take the classes.

Since you already have a BS I would look into grad school. If you are willing to put in the time and money look into the local MBA programs. Personally I predict once this recession is over companies will be looking for talented MBA students.

SSN, i got a prime example of what you were saying of lack of quality engineers.

I work at my lhs and there was a mechanical engineer came in and came in looking to buy a rc car. So after talking to him and finding one that fit what he was looking for "bought the slash," he mentioned that he was looking at running it in sand. I straight up told him, DO NOT RUN IT IN SAND. I made myself very clear on that and my boss herd me say that too. Later that afternoon we got a call from the engineer saying that his car didn't run... He brought it in next day and lo and behold... SAND! Sand was in the motor AND he ran it through water... He left it at the shop and it took me 5 min to blow the sand out and get it running again.

It really irritates me that a mechanical design student has to tell an engineer not to run the car in sand, and he does it anyway, AND he cannot figure out what he did wrong or how to get the sand out of a motor... I hope that this isn't what i have to look forward to when working with engineers.

Sorry for the hijack

i feel really embarassed and insecure about my spelling.
Dont be, every other word you typed is correct I beleive, that being said Im not the type of person who goes over every single line in someones post looking for errors like some pompus ass scool teacher.

Is it beleive or beleive? I think the latter but who realy gives a ****. its an internet forum for crying out loud!

I think people who lecture people about there poor spelling a snobs, Ide rather be called a retard than a snob anyday.

If you want to get realy technical about pronunciation LOL here we go again I have no idea "pronounciation"

How many times do we use the word "used" in order to explain that we were once engaged in an activity of some sort.

e.g "I used to fly RC helis" or "It used to be so much different in my day"

[1913 Webster] 1. To make use of; to convert to one's service; to avail one's self of; to employ; to put a purpose; as, to use a plow; to use a chair; to use time; to use flour for food; to use water for irrigation.
