Liberator said:Thanks for the quick reply guys, I am in the process of changing my major for the upcoming semester.
I am considering a "useless" degree in order to get a higher gpa. I am just worried about my high school transcript, because I wasn't motivated back then and I had no aspirations. Do you guys think my outrageous grades from highschool will effect the committee's decision, even if my univ. grades are high?
Liberator said:I've actually got 2.5 years left to complete my bachelors and I am most likely applying as DEO. I only want to be a pilot, i wont be happy in any other trade. Therefore, Im dishing out myself for my degree, to minimize the risk of being drafted in a different trade in case I wont make.

I'm thinking of paying for my degree on my own and not taking the governments dollar to avoid the risk of being drafted as an officer and possibly not getting a position as a pilot.
Liberator said:Lol their not useless degrees, but I have some friends who have psych degrees and even economics degrees and arent finding jobs. Bachelor degrees on their own are quite "useless" unless a persons got a solid plan of what he/she can do with it.

Liberator said:Besides Mechanical Engineering, could you suggest any other degrees to take, to enhance our applications. Would geography be a good course to study? Would an applicant even have a shot with a psychology degree?
Some might be surprised at how smart some people with the most "useless" degrees are...

From one of your other posts:
Again, we do not draft anyone into anything.
BTW, pilots are officers.
