*apparently forgot to post in this thread long ago*

Eh....there haven't been many careers that really appeal to me....right now I'm pretty much leaning towards a nursing major, with a minor-ishy in either Art or Japanese...ohmy.gif

I'm only in eighth grade, so I have plenty of time to decide, but for now I'm planning on majoring in equine studies. biggrin.gif
mei_tenshi
I'm geared towards history right now, but I'm not so sure anymore. Ethnic studies is my back-up plan...or maybe English? Honestly, I'm about as decisive as I was a year ago--which isn't saying much. tongue.gif
Molecular Alchemist
well, I feel kinda outta the loop here....I already have my BS in Biology (emphasis in Neuroscience and Behavioral Genetics) and I am currently getting my MS in molecular science and cell biology. So, I kinda like to think of myself as a modern-day alchemist..hehehe. and I'm only 23 so don't you even THINK I'm old...hehehehe biggrin.gif

Heartless_Soldier
Precise, Prise I forget the name it just a college in LA. They just sent some represenitive to Our high school to tell us what they have there. And if they don't have offer the clase anymore I'm learning Japanese and moving to Japan because I know they have the worlds best robotics there.

Bacon, please. Give me the mercy; spare me the agony. It's hell if you're not good at chemistry.

EDIT

Actually, it's not the course or the subjects. It's the really mean faculty who lack mercy and compassion, contrary to what they teach us.

I know exactly what you mean, Bling_Angel. All universities are the same...they have some really good profs, and ALOT of really bad ones. Unfortuntly, the really bad ones are usualy the ones that are teaching the entry-level courses, or the core-requirements for a major (aka my classical physics prof... mad.gif ) ) Sadly, I have alot of friends who made the bio/nursing to psych switch somewhere down the line due to this very reason. And it's horrible, because, as you said, it's not the material...it's the teachers...and they ruin people's dreams, and it's not right! But psych should be fun...you can shrink (sp) people and play mind games with your teachers...<evil laugh>

That's not sad...that's good! Good for you, lucky biggrin.gif What do you plan on doing, anyway????
Luckyalchemy27
Equine studies. biggrin.gif

And of course, I had to pick an obscure college, so my friends are like, ".....where?" laugh.gif
Molecular Alchemist
YEAH! I love horses! biggrin.gif

but..at the risk of sounding like your friends.....where would you go for that, though?
Luckyalchemy27
University of Findlay.

Psychology or Marine Biology. I can't make up my mind....
Alita
Either computer graphic arts or visual art.
Thievesvinegar
Ahaha. What a suitable topic. Something with Poli Sci, Econ, Internat. Business, Internat. Relations, Journalism/broadcasting...and I can't decide whether to take chinese or japanese. Chinese would be more practical but I LIKE japanese. See all I have to do is decide what I want to do with the rest of my life, no biggie.

A warning from a fellow biologist...it's VERY HARD to find a job as a marine biologist. And if you have aspirations to work in seaworld, they are very selective and are hardly ever hiring anyway. And even if you become a fully-phledged marine biologist, complete with a PhD and everything, you still need to find funding for your work...which is getting harder and harder nowadays, even for the renowned Marne biologists (I'm not plugging it, or anything, but the way that bio is heading, everything...even the behavioral branches are going cellular and molecular)..so if you DO decide to go down the Mar. bio path, (my advice, should you choose to accept it) would be to at least broaden your bio background so that you don't hit a brick wall later in life. smile.gif Good luck to ya, my friend

hahaha! I'll keep that in mind, dude tongue.gif I can see the news already "Do you have enough BACON?"...and then people will only get half the story, and not realize that BACON was actually a gene name, not the pork by-product..and then everyone will freak out go out and buy bacon..and then everyone will eat bacon...and pigs will become endangered...and humans will become even more fat than what they really are...and then there will be a major epidemic...and it will all be because of the gene that, when in low levels, will prevent you from getting laid, was named BACON blink.gif hehehe...together, we can bring demise to the entire WORLD!!!!!

World domination has been in my plans since I first saw Pinky & The Brain do it.
Molecular Alchemist
^^^ME TOO!! "What are we going to do tonight, Brain?" "The same thing we do every night, Pinky...TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!" I TOLD YOU WE WOULD BE A GREAT TEAM!!!! laugh.gif

Is it bad to go through college and STILL get all my inspirations from cartoon shows? that should tell you a thing or two about society.... hahaha! (but that dicsussion is for another forum....) tongue.gif

Media Communications (BA Honors) I'm guessing this is the equivilant to what you're on about.

I was at a national conference for research administrators a few weeks back. It turns out that a larger percent (probably 70% or so) have no business training in school, yet they are the business administrators for research departments at hospitals, universities, etc...

Goes to help emphasize the fact that your major has very little to do with your career choice.
~FMAgurl~
I'm probably a bit young to contribute to this topic (seeing as I haven't even started highschool), but I plan on majoring in chemical engineering smile.gif

I'm only just deciding about what I plan to major in so I don't know that much at all. But I heard that Sam Houston University in Huntsville has a good forensics department so I plan to go there.
