I'm an undergrad in petroleuum engineering applying for mechanical engineering MS in graduate school
I have two options to graduate:
Take 23 credits (I take 20 almost every semester anyways) and enroll in an Applied Thermodynamics course so it appears on my transcript as having taken one more mech engineering class
Don't take applied thermodynamics and have all general electives and pet courses my last semester (which would still be 20 credits).
I'm trying to weigh the benefits to the costs and I'm not sure admissions officers seeing one extra mech engineering course outweighs the negatives of 23 credits... but some input would be nice!
