Hello all, This is my first post on this website, and while it is not necessarily an 'ROTC' specific program I wanted to post it on this site because I feel that the members here will be able to relate to my situation the most. First off, a little background information: I'm currently a First-Year Engineering major at Purdue, hoping to get accepted into either the Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering departments after I complete the last prerequisites this summer. Like many others, I came into college with a great GPA, test scores, and received the 4-year AROTC scholarship (I accepted) and thought that I would do fine in college. However, I'm now done with my first year and I'm really starting to rethink whether or not I have what it takes to actually graduate with a good enough GPA in engineering to get a good job, if I should decide to leave the military early on. I got a 2.9 first semester and am looking at between a 2.7-2.9 this semester. The only thing holding me back from switching majors at this point is the fact that I know I have a guaranteed job after college because of the military, but I am still worried if it will hurt me in the long run should I decide to leave the military. I am also decently involved on campus (ROTC, Fraternity member, as well as my Fraternity's Riley Dance Marathon representative), but I do not know how much that will play into effect from an employer's perspective. I know of friends who had sub 2.0 GPA's while being engineering majors who then got over 3.5's after switching to some sort of business major. Purdue statistically has the lowest grade inflation in the U.S., but I feel like many employers will overlook that statistic. So to sum everything up, my question is whether or not you all would recommend considering a different major (I am also very interested in business majors) or if you think I should stay on track even with my very low GPA. I am only looking for others' opinions on this matter, because my parents always give me the response of 'at least you have a guaranteed job after college', and I feel like that is a terrible perspective to have. Sorry for the long post, but please let me know if you have any helpful advice.
