Hi Payton,

Probably not, but I do not know enough about you to make an informed comment. Everybody thinks that engineers need to __like__ math. That is not entirely true, many people may not like math BUT they can do math. Think of math as a tool. You may really like flowers, to plant flowers you may need a shovel (a tool). You may not like shovels, but you need to be able to use one to get flowers. Math is a valuable tool in the training of a mind to think logically and to focus on a problem.

Many engineering schools will not accept someone with SAT scores below a certain number. If you are just starting high school, it is not to late to get up to speed in math (private tutors are one way) by taking the more advanced math classes and putting in extra time on that subject.

Have you taken the SATs? If so you can contact an engineering school that you might like to go to and ask about what their math SAT requirements are. You might also consider a Community (Junior) College. Many state colleges have a program which allows someone who does well in the Community College classes (e.g. math) to transfer to the college after 2 years to finish out their BS degree. You could check with your guidance councilor or local Community College about such programs.

Good luck,

Hope this helps,

Doug
