Mechanical Engineering or Esquire-ism?

Since I can't make up my mind, I shall turn to you all, rather then flipping a coin over and over until I land on something and just decide to stick with it. I have to register for classes this coming month and am at that point where people have hammered stuff into my mind and have no clue as to what my major should be.

Mechanical Engineering is where my heart lies, although I hate it at times because of all of the math. Would be going for a PhD in ME, as it's a promise to myself as well.

Being an attorney is something I'd be good at, yet love, but I don't know. Cheaper and less time consuming...

Argh, I hate decisions.

Attempted law and dropped out after one semester...way too much reading.

Now do'in ME I love it...really interesting, keeps sucking you in at proving why things work on paper first. Unfortunately the math is where the torture lies but well worth it imo.

Try both...why not!

The rest of your professional life determined by a group of strangers......interesting.

Why not get an undergrad in Mech Eng (with all the necessary credits for Law School) get kick ass grades and enroll into Law school if you so choose. Or better yet work as an Eng for a year then decide if Law is what you want or further Eng education is your thing? Unless the system there is drastically different then here there is no CLEAR advantage to taking Law as an undergrad when it comes to applying to Law School.

i would suggest not worrying too much about doing a prelaw program at the undergrad level. As far as i know, as long as one performs well in any number of 4 year bachelor degree programs, one can enter law school at any time there after (after taking LSAT of course).

i know a few ME majors and other majors who have gone on to do law school and have become patent lawyers, etc.

What kind of mechanical engineer? There are many different kinds. For expample:

I work for a HVAC company underneather a mechanical engineer (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) He makes good bank. I could not see myself doing it but hey thats me. He has alot of head aches day in and day out but he makes the bank as well. Sounds like the mech engineer is where you want to be so I voted engineer.
