DD was awarded NROTC scholarship and the unit was transferred to a great engineering school, however my concern is that perhaps she should consider changing her major (she has to do so before entering the university and get approval from the school) to a 'lesser' science [my perception of something less taxing] other than Chemical Engineering. My fear is that she will either burn out from the heavy course load, NROTC and sports team commitments while trying to maintain her average. Obviously she will need approval to change from Tier 1 to Tier 2, but I was wondering others' thoughts on this. I have read many reviews of her school by students lamenting how difficult the grading is at their school, while the work is above par to some other universities with a more generous grading curve. She's my first, so I don't know what to expect. Thanks for your input in advance, I have always gotten some great insight here.
