How do I know what major to select?

Updated Decatur, Georgia

Throughout the early stages of my college career, I was unsure of what I wanted "to be when I grew up." With so many choices, I understand many other students are wondering the same thing. I wanted to expand the clarity from other individuals on what newly applied students should do in this case. #college #teaching #teacher #students #professors #graduates #undecided

<span style="background-color: transparent;">Collegeboard.org is a great resource for this! I poured through the pages of universities all over the U.S. when I was a senior in high school. Collegeboard was my go-to site! They put all of the information in one place and it is very easy to use. They even have various filters you can apply to see only colleges that have programs you are interested. To determine academic rigor, look at the admissions requirements, G.P.A. of past admitted applicants, SAT/ACT scores, class rank etc. This will give you an idea of what scores and grades you need to be accepted. However, don't be discouraged your application will be reviewed based on the full picture! College-board will help you get an idea of what is most important to the specific school you are applying to.</span>

This professional recommends the following next steps:

  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Chat with your Guidance Counselor</span>
  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Create a Collegeboard.org account</span>
  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Start using CollegeBoard as a resource to look up schools.</span>

Hello dear, when I had choosen the major subject some years ago, I didn't think too much I just go with flow. I love to read about how machines and systems work? The science behind them and so I choose engineering. Why so much of worrying?

It is very obvious if someone is passionate about something,he/she will choose that instead of situation,circumstances.

Remember, one thing whatever you will do just do with faith. I mean to say, believe on your decision.

Second thing,all qualifications are equal. Third thing, put all your effort into that and whatever the major you choose,posses its higher position at your mind.
