Hi, My name is Grace
For a long while I’ve been unsure of what I want to do in the future. I’ve always loved Physics, Engineering, and Foreign Languages, but I could never find a career that really felt right. I pondered med school for awhile but being stuck in one place all my life (as well as the atrocious amount of student debt) doesn’t really seem appealing to me. I love to travel, and here recently I saw a news article about a female pilot. I have NEVER in my life seen a female pilot flying, and apparently it’s not too common. Since then thoughts of becoming a pilot have been plaguing my mind, it seems like a good fit to my interests. So my question is: Is it possible for any female to become a pilot, or do they have to be extraordinary/ top of their class?
Another question is that I found that a lot of places recommend a bachelors degree. A university that I applied to has an aerospace engineering program in its school of Engineering. If I am able to go down this path would it be wise to major in aerospace engineering or another science I’m passionate about, like Physics? Also: how important is GPA to people becoming pilots (since I hear engineering programs are a real GPA killer)?
