Question by Bry: Do you think I have a good chance of becoming an engineer?
I am about to graduate high school and still undecided on what I really want to do for college. I was accepted to Manhattan College for the School of Engineering and I am having second thoughts.
SAT scores: 490 CR and 530 Math
ACT score: 21 (composite)
Math Regents: Math A-88 Math B-76
Science Regents: physics,earth science, chemistry, living environment (83-87)
Can someone with an engineering background critique me on my chances of becoming a successful engineer?
What careers are good that you can do with science?

If you put your mind to it and expect to be busier than most of your friends in easier majors then you will succeed. More importantly if you are interested in the concepts of engineering and the skills it needs to be a successful engineer (problem solving using intuition and math) you will succeed. Honestly this is the most important thing as you don’t want to be miserable for four years.
High school was a joke compared to college especially because I am in an engineering college. Also your grades aren’t too great to be frank with you. You may have difficulty catching up to the level of math and physics. I got a 750 in math SAT and a 99 on physics regents as a baseline.
I would suggest researching the various classes you would be taking and see if they spark an interest in you. Would you enjoy being in engineering types of classes instead of another major?
