Each experience is going to be different, but for most people, college is the first time that you are completely setting your own schedule. This is the time to learn about time management. No-one is accountable for your where-abouts accept you and no-one can take credit for your successes but you. The really awesome thing is that even though your life is totally yours to be accountable for now, everyone is around to help give advise. As an adult, that's priceless. This is the beginning of you setting your own path. My suggestion is to be able to listen to the experiences of others and advise of others and then to take the pieces that work for you. If you feel like your degree path is perfect... then it is, simply because YOU think so and YOU have to accomplish it. You guidance counselors are there to help you and they are wonderful resources, but realize that you aren't wrong if you aren't sold on their paths. Just like you have the power to determine if your path is right, you also have the power to determine if it's wrong. If you want to change your degree... then do it! Your guidance counselor probably won't like it, but if that feels wrong to be where you are, then it's your responsibility to fix it. Understand this... there is no way to do college wrong. There is only the way you chose to do it. That will lead to more choices, and that makes your life. If you don't get a job in your degree field, you're not going to end up without a way to pay your bills. You'll just do something else and have a college degree under your belt which will qualify you for management in almost any field. There really isn't a way for you to mess this up. I know you are putting a lot of pressure on yourself to make the perfect decisions but every choice you make will be perfect.
