    Engineering has money, demand and a high dropout rate. It's a tough gig, though I suspect the buggers play the martyr a bit.
    ****ed if I know. I can't really point out one aspect the sciences at the moment and say "**** yeah, THAT'S my thing". I just find most of it fairly interesting.

    Yeah some say it's as bad as med.

    In what? I don't think in the long term a BS or BE will matter. If you mean it in the way the US structures it (e.g some people get BS in Computer Science, some people get BA, and some get BE).

    Well would you rather do engineering or would you rather try out the sciences?

    If you take the BSc route, I'm pretty sure most unis have a set of starter type selections to give you a broad selection of subjects to experiment with.

    Do you have to decide right away? You can spend the first year taking various classes and see what you like more? Science and engineering are VERY different career paths. If you want to do pure science, you'll have to do much more than a BS, where as with engineering often BE is enough.

    What country are you in?

    Isn't there a fair bit of overlap between engineering and the sciences though? Keep in mind I don't really know **** about how they work currently.

    In kiwiland it's pretty hard to know if you like your degree in first year because first year papers are pretty crap and are usually the filler ones like your stats and/or maths paper you need, and your communications paper you need etc.

    No. You will need to know basic science to do engineering but the practice of engineering is quite different than the practice of science. Engineering is a 'practical' sort of endevour whereas science is not. The job opportunities and pay will be higher in engineering. It depends on what you're looking for really. The typical day is VERY different for both.

    What subjects do you like learning at the moment?

    (Mapped that btw)

    I guess we'll agree to hate each other forever disagree.

    I make fun of engineers but it's a great profession which is usually in good demand as all technical professions tend to be. However, you won't be working at the scientific 'edge' if that's what suits you. Generally very few people get a PhD in engineering (those who do want to work at the 'edge', but a different sort) whereas a PhD is pretty much a pre-requisite to be able to do anything independently in science (whether in industry or academia).

    However, your first job should be to figure out what subjects you enjoy learning.

    Put the following in order of your enjoyment (or ability): Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology. Also how far have you gotten in each?
