So I'm 16 (almost 17) Junior in HS... trying to decide what to think about majoring in college

62 posts in this topic

Above. I was thinking some advice would be nice from guys who know what this is all about and the outlook for certain fields. I'm obviously in no rush, I can switch majors once I get to college or do whatever it takes but I want to start really getting a few in mind.

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.

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. .

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. :)

If this is your attitude, good luck in all your future endeavours! Sounds like you will need it.

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.

Anything with "computer" or "technology" in the name of the major should be pretty good.

Or, just go to college and sell pot to students.

    • You're looking at a false reality. You're creating a narrative that doesn't truly exist, that a person is only defined by their race and nothing else. Your views on people are just as bad as those who created the Jim Crow Laws, spit on people and look down on them based on race only, and enslaved millions because of the color of their skin; never once considering them how they are as a person. You see them based on their race instead of how they are as people. Ignore the fact that America has elected a black president twice in a row for an 8 year presidency. Ignore the plentiful amount of successful blacks in plenty of fields of career fields who are wealthy and living a productive and successful lifestyle. Ignore the dominance of black athletes in sports. Look at them as people, and how their personality and characteristics got them to where they are instead of race. The way they got to where they are is completely justified and has nothing to do with race.
    • He's the most intriguing prospect of the draft.  If he can be a true T with the ability to not only play both spots but to excel in them we may have selected one of the steals of the draft.  Sucks we won't have that 5th yr option but I'd welcome that problem later to have a true LT/RT for years to come.
    • I 100% support his politics. I 100% hate him as a QB...along with Wilson Luck and Ryan. I want him to succeed as I like having NFL adversaries for Cam #TeamCam
