One suggestion: learn to follow instructions.

See Rule #6. http://cr4.globalspec.com/faq/cr4rules

You came here asking for help.

Talk to your advisor.

Google "chemical engineering career help for college students".

No one here is obligated to help pushy college students.

Research and information gathering are very important qualities of a successful engineer.

Try it.

No one owes you an answer.

If you throw attitude at people, you're even less likely to get any help.

Another suggestion: Try to be more specific in telling people what kind of help you want.

I.e., help for __ what? Deciding what courses to take? Finding a college with the course of study you want? Deciding between the two fields you mentioned?
Have you talked to an advisor? Checked the interwebz for salary or available positions? Looked in a library for books on either field?

If you want help with classes, you'll need to go somewhere else. This is not a homework help site.

Old saying from the chemical industry and many others---> "You can catch more flies with sugar (Sucrose) than you can with vinegar (5% Acetic Acid). Newer axiom of this is "You get farther in your communications with others by demonstrating respect, interest, clarity, asking sensible questions and knowing at least a little about what you are speaking of.

Your question and your later comments ain't gunna get yous no wherr tills yous stops yous B*tching!

Good Luck, Old Salt

You really need to do your own homework, Mildred. Now stop wasting time on here and get on with some real work instead.
