Do you ever have second thoughts about your college major?
 

 
What up BX...

I was wondering if any of you currently enrolled in college or who have graduated have ever developed second thoughts about their choice of major?

I'm currently an accounting major and I just dread the bullsh*t of staying in an office and reviewing numbers over and over again for years to come.

I feel that if I change my major, I'm only screwing myself even more by delaying graduation and all that bullsh*t.

I'm a senior in college and I shouldn't be having this perspective about my major.

Speak.

It happens man. The best advice I can give ya based on my personal experience is to just get that degree on time. Try out the field for a year or two and knock down some of those loans if anything. You might even like it. IF it's insufferable, then go to grad and pick up another career field that way. My friend was a History major because he thought he wanted to be a coach, realized that's not what he wants to do... Leveled some Science and Math classes took the MCAT and now he's in his second year of Med School... So you're not completely screwed... Just think about that...

Edit... Graduated undergrad in '09

I just recently started college last fall and so far my major has changed each quarter. First I wanted to pursue engineering but I figured that would be too hard (so much physics), then I wanted to do physical therapy but getting into the program is very challenging (also most physical therapists have a bachelors degree in exercise physiology or some pointless degree. If I wasn't able to get into a PT program I would be stuck with a degree where you cant really start a career from), so now I plan on pursuing accounting and hopefully I dont get second thoughts as I get into it. But accounting is a good career to get into and they make decent money! And if I'm still into physical therapy, I can still get into their program because they require any bachelors degree(like accounting) with some pre reqs. And if I dont get into the program, I'd have accounting as a backup

I was thinking about engineering, but you really gotta be good at those physics stuff and calculus. It's so challenging. I couldn't even pass my pre-calc class so I know I wouldnt be able to do that. What kind of engineering are you majoring in?

This is why you should always go to school for what your passion about... but since your a senior it would be stupid as fu*k to change majors... just graduate, figure out what you wanna do get the experience, and all else won't matter, plenty of accounting majors in other fields besides accounting... your experience at the end of the day will guide your career path..

Yeah I feel you on that. I actually spoke with one of my professors who basically told me that accounting is a really respected degree in business and that it opens the door for the most positions in business.

Man, I'm an accountant and the whole stererotype of "sitting in an office and reviewing numbers" is bullsh*t. There are different job types within accounting that you can do. It's pretty diverse. You can do anything from taxes "which is true to the stereotype", to auditing which is also kinda true but you do a lot of traveling, to forensic accounting which is far from it. Or, you can be like myself and work in a corporation doing lots of different sh*t involving accounting but not just reviewing numbers. I'm involved with presentations, creating and improving processes, traveling to customer sites, phone conferences the list goes on. And within reviewing numbers, there's differences within that. So it's not just doing one set thing.

Also, as a senior, you should of done atleast one internship or job screened different professions within accounting. If you havent, thats on you, you're behind my friend. Change your major as a senior is fu*king retarded, especially as an accounting major with all the demand and jobs available.

I'm in that boat right now. I'm a senior with all but one of my core classes left with most of my general electives left as well. I've been having a LOT of trouble securing an internship within my field. I wanna get out of it cause of the fear of not obtaining a job after I graduate next year. But whatever.

I'm joining a few clubs in my senior year to fluff up the resume, but I understand what you mean in regards to missing out on an internship opportunity. My degree isn't strictly accounting, it's Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting and you aren't bound to pick your concentration until the semester before your senior year. I do got work experience though which I hope helps. But yeah, I'm sticking with the major and I'm gonna aim high as I can for my GPA

For what its worth most people that graduate go on to work in a completely unrelated field. I can relate to you when you say accounting seems boring. I hate accounting. I like business, more specifically sales. All my core classes are for poli sci though. fu*k life.

Yo MIS is legit my n*gga. Computer Science would of been a way better choice, but their are definitely many positions in regards to Information Systems. Just gotta find the company willing to hire entry level upon graduation, unless you already working for a company
