I would try to get some additional exposure to all three fields. Oftentimes after you're in school for a year or so, you realize that the field isn't quite what you thought it would be. I had a cousin who went into civil engineering and figured out later he really wanted to be an architect. But above all it must be something you enjoy or you will be miserable and saddled with debt.
As a practical matter, you also have to figure out where the economy is going to be five years from now. Aerospace hiring is going down the tubes currently, but will probably be a different story by the time you get done.
I didn't realize that ChE wasn't exactly what I thought it would be until I was 2 years into the program, but then I found out that it was MORE interesting than what I had originally thought.
You can't die. That would upset the equilibrium in the Cave.
