Well when it was finally my time to choose which and beleive me it was'nt fun at all., you don't pick a course because it's gonna be fun but you pick it because it will help your future. It was hard to decide but i chose the best thing that would help me make a living

You should always choose something that you enjoy doing. There is a difference between a good paying job and a good paying career. You can have a very good job but if you are not happy it is just that, a job. A career should be rewarding and enjoyable.

I chose psychology when I was a freshman because the money sounded good to me at the time. I also think psychology is interesting. But then I realized that I would rather work with animals thans humans. So I'm studying biology to work with animals. I may go for zoology in the future. I'm glad I changed my major because I have always loved animals and I want to help them.

To me it was not hard at all. You need to choose something that you enjoy doing. dont chase money or any of that because you can have a very good paying job and still be miserable. I chose Marketing because it is something that I really enjoy.

i had a hard time choosing what to study too. i was torn with computer science, philosophy and linguistics. i love computers and i'm quite good with programming (i think) but i hate the math part (a LOT of math). but i'm also quite interested with philosophy (though i don't know much about philo) and linguistics (i love studying languages - even computer languanges. lol). i tried entering two universities and i failed one. the university i entered doesn't offer philosophy and linguistics, so i stuck with computer science. i don't know much about psychology but my friend and former classmate when i was a freshman, she shifted to psychology and she seems happy and having loads of fun with it.
