    10. Learn to reason logically. Who knows, it may be useful someday.

    8. SOMEBODY has to understand all those equations that make the planes stay up in the air, or all the planes will fall down!

    6. Make 90% of an Engineer's salary without having to take all those courses.

    5. Rebel against all those who told you "You're good in Math, so you should be an Engineer".
