If you've read some of my other posts, you get the idea about who I am, etc. But if you haven't. I'm 19. I was homeschooled, graduated from high school in May, but had taken many classes at community college while in high school, and I graduated with 47 credits on my college transcript. So I trasferred in a sophomore by credit.
Because I hadn't been able to formulate a plan for my life, and have no idea what I want to do, I stayed here, in the town I've been raised in, to attend the university my parents both graduated from.
I live at home, as well. And it's afffordable for my parents, unlike many other academic choices.
I'm only taking 12 credits..but I HATE college. Which is odd in my opinion, because I loved all my community college classes.
I also declared an english major here at Uni. But...when I found myself standing in the crosswalk around the third week of classes, hoping to get hit by a bus just so I wouldnt have to go to English classes, I discovered I wasn't an english major.
Also, when my eng professor at my night class started recommending to us students what "odd jobs we might take to make ends meat while trying to be writers" I realized i don't want to go to school, and spend all that time and money on a degree that won't get me much of a chance at a job.
I want to change majors. I interested in animal sciences, genetics, and behaviors. I'm considering changing to a BIO major, but the kicker is...MATH. I went through several math curriculums, and had to take the course TWICE at community college...JUST TO PASS ALGEBRA 1! THAT'S AS FAR AS I GOT! I CAN'T DO IT! I try and it's like a wall. THe other motivation for being an ENG major was I only had to take ONE math class ever. BUT A BIOLOGY MAJOR HAS TO TAKE LOADS OF MATH, CALC, STATISTICS, PHYSICS, AND....DARE I SAY THE DREADED WORD...CHEMISTRY. I don;t think I have a chance. Why does the amazing part of science and the fascinating things like genetics have to be ruined by math? I would consider an animal science major, BUT the university I'm at doesnt offer it, and I know someone who has an animal science bachelors degree, and he can't even get a job with it.
I feel like a bio degree would give you a broader scope and better chance at more jobs.
I'm rambling again, but I just wondered if anyone had advice/input aobut choosing a major? How did you do it?
My dream school would be Ohio state..where I've always wanted to go since I was a little tiny kid. But the out of state tuition..Fat chance.
