So I'm 16 (almost 17) Junior in HS... trying to decide what to think about majoring in college
Posted 30 December 2012 - 11:01 PM
Here's a little bit about me as a student: I'm a pretty smart guy, I'm easily in the top 10% of my high school class.... closer to top 5. I love sports and I love writing, so journalism has been something I've considered. However it's an awful field full of low paying jobs and very few really explode onto the scene. However I really enjoy that, so I'll continue to consider it regardless.
I can't stand science, I want nothing to do with a field that involves a lot of science so that crosses off a lot of jobs in the medical field and like engineering and stuff.
So what I'm really considering is something related to business. BUt what? What I've really thought about is accounting, that's a good field that offers many solid paying jobs and they are easy to find. But I've also considered something like economics, entrepreneurship, business administration, etc.
I have ton of time, but I love hearing advice from people who know more about some of these fields, so I'd love to hear some.

Most everyone knows I'm too young. My first account got banned so I just made another, ban this one and I'll make another. It's not too hard of a process
You know you have to be 18 to post here so u might want to edit...

Fwiw, I think that for a lot of students, 18-22 is way to young to decide what they want to do with their lives. I am old and still haven't decided what I want to do.

Seriously, if you are undecided when you attend college, spend the first year taking the required courses, and figure out what your major is going to be while you are there.
this is very good advice. you will be able to spend at least two semesters, and sometimes up to four, knocking out your core courses out of the way and in the process you may find something that inspires you. if you have any flexibility in requirements, explore your options and take what interests you. if you need a humanities course, for instance, explore around and find something that you don't know anything about, or something that's always intrigued you. you never know what's going to spark a deep interest that you'll want to pursue further.
