I’m a bit confused, are you wanting to work as an engineer for Boeing or Airbus, or are you wanting to become a pilot? If you are wanting to become an aerospace engineer, it sounds like you are well on your way down the right path.
I can tell that you take pride in your education, which is great because I do as well, much more so than most pilots I know. On the one hand, I will say that doing very well in school does not have that much of a benefit in flying. To reach the top (captain for a major airline), you just need a college degree, doesn’t matter what major or GPA. However, having an excellent education history can open doors for you in the peripheral aspects of aviation. For example, a pilot examiner I had for my commercial checkride was a 787 captain for United. But, he also was the head of their recruiting department and had other management roles because had a masters degree in business from a prestigious school
