I am currently a college student working on my undergrad in physics and astronomy. I chose this path a long time ago and have never found a reason to do anything else.
My current school isn’t working for me the way I want it to. I’ve even gone so far that I’m struggling to maintain a decent GPA. I don’t feel inspired here and the guidance I seek out usually stops at telling me to change my major with the reasoning that I “might not be cut out for physics. Not everyone knows where they’re going and its ok for life to take an unexpected direction.”
My problem is that I’ve had this dream for most of my life and have never stopped wanting it. Running into the financial issues that come with a suffering GPA have taken their toll so that I have started hating my school life more and more with each passing day. I feel like I’m stuck in one place not moving in the direction I want because the way ahead wasn’t built for me to navigate.
I’ve looked at other schools out of state that offer more of what I want but I will end up drowning further in debt because of the higher prices.
Should I transfer? Is there a way to improve my current predicament?
I don’t know what to do.
