I'm at a point in my life that I don't know what's good for me anymore. I dropped out of college with a 2.65 gpa having 80 credits complete. I tried to join the air force for a year but it was taking too long((I literally wasted a year of my life doing nothing) so this year I went back to school and got a 3.0 in the spring semester. I was so happy. My overall gpa had bumped to a 2.71. I was finally doing well and learned how to study. In the fall, I guess my courses got more difficult and I'm pretty sure I got 2.0-2.5. I have around 45 credits left. Even if I make 4.0s for the rest of my school years, I'd still be below a 3.0 gpa average.
My major is petroleum engineering. I'm also 24 years old. Should I drop out with the low gpa and just join the military or continue on with my studies.

Think of it like this.
A school graduates 100 doctors.
Only one finished first in the class.
One also finished last in the class.
They both got the same piece of paper.
Also having a degree in a science is a good thing no matter your gpa.
