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

If you are thinking about accounting, it's a really tough major. I just think business is a good major to pick and it offers a lot of different concentrations to appeal to your tastes.
Another tidbit, I didn't find anything I learned in high school applicable to college. It doesn't prepare you at all. Of course, I didn't take any AP classes, but I took all honors. It is really a completely new experience.

As far as you not liking Physics and other science courses, my suggestion would be to try and meet a great set of smart individuals within your major, and have them help you out along the way in subjects you struggle with. It's how many of us engineer majors get by where I'm at. We live by the motto, "teamwork makes the dream work." It's obvious you'd be capable of getting through a physics or science course, especially if your in the top 5-10% of your class. I'm a senior Chemical Engineer major, but at times I've considered switching to IE. I like how it's a combination of both engineering and business. But, whatever you decide to major in good luck. You'll be fine

There is no prototype for higher education. After HS, I went directly into community college because it was cheaper and got many of my BS classes out of the way. I then took a few semesters off to join the Army. I'm now using the benefits to get my Mechanical Engineering degree nearly free of charge. I'm 24, slogging through the courses and it's going to take a few more years, but I am enjoying life not living within a template. No student should feel that way.
BTW, yes...the sciences and engineering classes do suck ass, but the other side is nothing but greener pastures. Engineering is one of the best careers out there; many employers are looking for anyone with a degree in that field. Even if you don't like the basics that make up engineering, keep it under consideration...don't slap it away so quickly.

like what? I wanna make money (who doesn't?) but I don't want to attend college more than 4 years. I might could tough it out four years.
too bad you don't like science, would be my suggestion... biology, biotech, depending on where you are, can lead to some awesome careers.
