I'm a marketing major in my 3rd year - but I loved my accounting class! How do I know which to major in?

I am currently a third year student in marketing. I switched to marketing at the beginning of my third year, so the business classes were knew to me. I will be graduating late. I took accounting 1 this fall and I absolutely loved it - which is weird for me to say. I didn't know anything about accounting before this class, so I thought I was going to dread it. It ended up being really "easy" for me since I enjoyed figuring the problems out and didn't mind studying. This was my first college class that I felt this way about. It is making me want to switch my major to accounting. Although, I haven't taken any marketing classes yet. I enjoy marketing partly because I enjoy the free range of job opportunities after undergrad. I like that it is creative and has endless job opportunities that don't all involve a job in a cubicle. I was looking for advice on this decision I have. I definitely need to shadow people in accounting and in marketing, but was also looking for advice on here from anyone! #major #business #college #advisor #accounting #marketing #career #advice #majors #jobs

Degree in biology... art/environment/science?

Hello, I graduated last year with a degree in biology in Florida... I've been pre-dental since 2010. I applied last cycle with a GPA of 3.4 and a DAT score of 17. I'm aware my DAT score isn't the best, and considering how competitive the dental career is becoming, I don't expect that to be enough. I've been "studying" to retake this dreadful exam for a few months now, though I can't deny I've had my ups and downs and have become discouraged. In the mists of all this time to think, I can't help but wonder what else is out there for me. I also know that every year about 12000 students apply to dental school and only less than half get accepted, so I'm not alone, but I also can't wait forever for something I'm questioning myself on so much; even if its only out of discouragement. I've always been a very artistic and creative person.... so i just can't help but wonder if theres something out there that I can use my biology degree in. I've been trying do so some research, but I'm in desperate need for more guidance. Helping our environment has also been something thats always intrigued me... So something where I could use my biology degree/ help the environment/ perhaps something artistic of some kind would be awesome... design of some sort/perhaps for health (idk how that works but someone mentioned it, i just can't find much information )....any ideas?Even if its in another country... I've just been so fixated on the "health department" aspect of things that just require you to apply to some kind of grad school, that now I'm just lost and don't know much of anything else because I didn't expect this to happen.... but life throws us curveballs and thats okay. These are just ideas I'm trying to seek, I'm still going to attempt applying this cycle to see whats happens, but I don't want to not explore because theres a voice in me that wants me to really see if theres something else I'll be passionate about..I'm still young, I just don't want to waste time because its more precious that money and I want nothing more than to learn and contribute... But feeling as stagnant as Im feeling isn't helping any drive in me whatsoever. This world is vast and filled with ideas, there has to be other options I'll be great for. (side note; all this time thinking just makes me think of the downside of dentistry I so often hear about: arthritis, tendonitis, back pain/problems, overstress, not to mention the student debt 300k-500k... most expensive career apparently) #science #environmental #career-change #advisor #sustainability #conservation-biology #sustainable-design

Let's say I want to become an environmental engineer and the required degree is a bachelor. Should I go to prestigious school to obtain my bachelors or no?

I am asking this question because I need to know this type of information in order to be successful in college. And it is information needed to be more marketable in the job market. #college #counselor #bachelor #advisor #choice

How does your college choice affect the pay rate in your career field?

I am enrolling at the University of Georgia for Business Administration and Mechanical Engineering in the fall. I am asking to get more insight on whether attending graduate school at a more prestigious university is a waste of time and money. #business #engineer #advisor

Is it a bad thing to switch your major?

I hear people saying how they changed their major in college. Some people make fun of them for not knowing what they want and wasting time and money. Is it a bad thing to change your major? Or should you just bite the bullet so to speak? #advisor

Is it best to take time off in between undergrad and graduate school to pursue things like work or travel, or is it best to just take everything in one big breath?

I can see the positive and negative possibilities with both taking time off in between graduate and undergraduate schooling and I'd like an experienced opinion. #teacher #professor #student #advisor #career #career-counseling

In terms of selecting a minor, which would be most helpful for someone entering the medical field?

I plan to enter the medical field following college and graduate school as I'd like to be an anesthesiologist, dermatologist or dentist. I feel secure in my selected major, but I'm not set on a minor yet and I'd like some feedback on what would help me the most while still allowing me to feel like my life isn't just consumed by school. #college #doctor #professor #student #advice #dentist #advisor

I chose a wrong major. I need a help. I am lost.

I am a chemical engineering student. It's my 3rd year in college but I hate my major now. I love mathematics, numbers but I love traveling, meeting people and learning new languages too. I want to start a new major but I want to be sure that I will love to work in this field. I don't want to loose more years. I feel lost. I really need a help or any advice that can really help me making the right decision. I used to be a class A student in my school but when I started college I didn't find interest in my major so I am a class B student in my college. I must note that I can't afford expensive universities (tuitions) unless I have a financial aid or student job or any scholatship. I am thinking about starting a civil engineering major (but I am not sure) which means I have another 5 years to study. I don't mind studying abroad. I really need a help please !! #college #engineering #majors #help #financial-aid #advisor
