Should I stop studying Engineering ? Please Help?
I'm 35 yrs old. I will earn my A.A in Engineering Science from an American Community College in fall 2008. Immediately, I will transfer to a Senior College to obtain my B.A in Mechanical Eng in fall 2010 . Mechanical Engineering is my dream since I was 19 yrs old.However, I didn't have the opportunity to return to college. I work about 30 hr/ week to pay my bills and tuition and I'm a full time student. Due to my outstanding G.P.A = 3.76/ 4.0 I have been granted with 3 full semesters scholarship and I am member of the International society Phi Theta Kappa.Very often, I had received invitations and part time scholarships from other American Universities to transfer and continue my education with them, sadly, I don't neither have the money to afford them nor I am eligible for a student loan.At times, I ask myself if continue studying or save all this money? How is going to offer a job to an inexperience 39 years old Mechanical Eng ? What can I do to gain experience? Pls Help

I'm an engineering major, and I like it, probably because it's the only thing I'm really good at. If you can keep with your studying, I think you should be able to find a job if you can demonstrate you are smart and motivated.
