Professor A's Choosing a Major Guidance

Who is Professor A?


1) Do I have to choose a major right away?
    Answer: Probably not. Many schools will ask you to declare a major after a year or two.

2) Department A of State U has accepted my application and Department B which offers my preferred major has rejected my application. 
   I really like State U. What should I do? 
   Answer:
Most students change majors or end up working in a career field unrelated to their major. This said, attend Department A of State U, 
   work hard to maximize your cumulative grade point average, and apply for a change of major to Department B.  

3) Does my major really count?
    Answer: You should major in something you like to do, rather than something you like to study. 
                  You may like to study psychology, but do you want to get a master's degree and be a school psychologist.

4) Do minors  Count?
    Answer? Yes especially if your major is not in high demand. Choose a high demand minor.
                      The vast majority of job openings will be in health care, education, business, and STEM areas.
                      Science, Technology engineering and Mathematics pay the most.
