    Failing in college, need advice
    So I just got done with my first semester of my 5th year of college, I'm sitting on a gpa of about a 1.82. I have about 3 semesters left until I graduate given I don't fail any more classes. My major is in Neuroscience and I have no idea what I want to do with it. Basically, I wanted to get out and either join the military or pursue a masters in something. However, I'm beginning to doubt that it is reasonable to even put more time in my degree. Best case scenario Ill graduate at the end of spring at the age of 24 with no higher than a 2.5 but probably more around the range of a 2.2. From there I will need to get good GRE scores and hope I can find a college that will accept me for a masters program. My other options are to try to start working now in a lab or something similar or enlist now. I can't really think of anything else and I'm beginning to really lose hope. I understand I have dug myself into this hole, if anyone can offer some advice on what would be the best move id appreciate it.

    So change your major to something you enjoy and have a interest in.

    If you are in Neuroscience with no idea of what you want to do with it, that is just silly.
    You do a history or drama degree is you want a degree that you don't know what to do with

    1) major in something you like. Changing majors happens all the time in college!
    2) talk to a counselor they are a HUGE help. Your college should have one
    3) if you really want to be in the military check to see if there is anything you can major in to help you purse that.
    4) if your dreams have changed that's fine.
    *go to your counselor your college should have one they are the best people to help you get out of a hole*

    Hope I could help
