What is the easiest way to balance double majoring in college, and having 2 jobs?
I am planning to double major in college, and already have two jobs as well, and I can already see it's going to be overwhelming and would like some advice.
The first area of concern is "why do you think that you need to carry a double major?" Perhaps by getting to know yourself better and the area for which you are considering better, you my find that it is not necessary. Many times you can major in one area and minor in another, which would take some stress off and possibly achieve the same end. Also, if you take a prudent approach to college, you might not need to work too jobs, as the goal in making any investment, such as education, is to make the outlay as reasonable as possible to allow the return to be as large as possible. Below are some tips that will help.

Another tip I'll add is to balance the classes workload in general. There are some classes in college that are very hard and time consuming (lots problem sets, readings, tests, etc), while some will be very easy and straight forward. Workload may also depend on what professors you take those classes with. So I recommend talking to students who have taken those classes so that you can plan ahead and make sure your schedule is balanced so that you are never taking too many hard classes at once!
