Engineers coursework in school is insane

Anyone else have a chemical engineer as a roommate in college? Holy fucking shit their course loads absolutely shit on any accounting/finance majors.

Can confirm. I wasn't even a ChemE, but a lot of my friends were. ChemE and EE by far had the most homework. If you're a true chad, you just take MechE and get old exams as those professors are old as dirt everywhere you go. My school was a top petroleum school and most of the real hardos went PE or ChemE

Very true, much harder than business studies. But if I may the engineering mindset is something that will be valuable for the rest of your life. No business major or almost any other major can get that and it is super useful in life. 

Have no regrets, engineering is hard but you train your brain for the rest of your life. Got to be worth it :-).
