I graduated high school in 2005 and am attending college now. I change my mind all the time on what I want my degree to be. Just get started, you will change your major like 3 or 4 times no matter what! lol

you will agree with me that changing college courses from time to time will be a waste of time, money and effort which are all non recoverable. i suggest that you go see a psychometrician or a psychologist who can help you identify that true field of interest which you can pursue and finish with interest. this will be most beneficial to you and will not cost you much.

I graduated from high school in 1998 and got married. I ended up playing the role of the wife and did not go to college at that time. I divorced a few years later and decided to put myself through school. I am 9 weeks away from getting my Associates and I start my Bachelors right after that. My circumstances prevented me from attending college at a physical location so I am attending the University of Phoenix. The work is actually pretty time consuming since the classes are condensed into a 9 week blocks but I love it. It keeps me busy and I know that I am expanding my mind. Good for you for pursuing your education. You can never do anything better for yourself. It seems that these days you almost need an Associates degree just to work at a fast food restaurant. Almost all employers require higher education now a days.

I graduated high school in 2001. I went to college for one year, and decided that I still had no clue what I wanted to do, so I wasn't wasting any more money. At the end of 2002, I decided that I what I really wanted to do was hair. So I went to cosmetology school for 9 months in 2003. I loved it! I did hair until last month, when I completely quit working to stay home with my son full time. I wouldn't suggest going to college until you know what you want to do. Otherwise you might just end up wasting a lot of time and money like I did.

I had finished Bachelor of Science in Accountancy but i did not take the CPA exam due to lack of interest. It is not my best choice in the first place, but i still finish it. It is the only best course my financial resources can afford. It seems that you are still undecided what to take up in college. I guess you must ask yourself what you wanna be in the future, what kind of job you think you will enjoy. What are you key-factors, what i mean is where do you usually excel. It is important that you are happy with the field of study you are taking into. Once you had decided the course you will take, make it fixed / permanent. What i mean is finished it, because switching into another course is a waste of time, money and effort, there are subjects that might not be credited to the course you will switch into.

i have finished my college course. in fact, i have 2 to my credit. at first, it was a four year course on a Bachelor of Arts major in English. then, it was followed suit by a five year course which got me a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree. soon after graduation, i took the government licensure examinations for civil engineers and passed it consequently. i have tried my hand at pursuing a graduate course, but it was stopped due to the coming forth of more pressing circumstances.

I dropped out of school and got my GED when I was 16. Spent the next three and half years of my life partying and living life. I started college last fall and I love it! It's really great. Granted, it's hard sometimes but once you start going you will love it! I'm majoring in pyschology and I absolutely adore it. I'm having a great time. You don't have to figure out what you want to do right away. You can have an undeclared major. Just take classes until you decide what you want to do.

I dropped out of school at the age of 16. Shortly after that I found out I was pregnant and decided I needed more of an education in order to support my child. SO I went back to get a GED and received it 2 months after starting. I ended up graduating a year before my class. I have been to college a couple of times, have about 32 hours under my belt but most are gen. ed. classes. At one point I was going for a Special Education major but the switched up to Psychology/Sociology major. Maybe one day when I have all my children in school I can go back and at least get a BA.
