Im currently a sophomore studying Mechanical Engineering and I just transferred from CC to a large research university and have been struggling in all my classes. I really feel Engineering is not for me since I though it would me more hands on career rather then studying theories and theorems behind it. But that's not how I expected. But the problem is, my transcript is really bad since I changed my major few times before at the CC and there for my GPA is only 2.6 and have many "W" and "F". My parents are pushing me into completing my education ASAP because this is my 5th year in college. Im really confused and stressed out because all the things going on right now. I feel like if I drop out of my classes right now, it'll look alot worse. I have wasted lot of money and time in the last 4 years since I realized mechanical engineering is not what I want to do. I want career that's more hands on and its not as tough as engineering. Another thing is, I don't feel mature to be in college because I don't value money and don't take education seriously. Please give me an advice on what I should do.
