Ep. 134 | What Should I Major In?

Your college major should be contingent on one deciding factor. Listen to this podcast to discover what that factor is.

Show Notes:

In this episode, I lay out a decision tree (with "if-then" statements) that dictates how you should think about your major. Should you care about your major? What should influence your choice of major? Are there any hard and fast rules with respect to choosing a major? How to avoid the double-whammy. If you are a high school student or a senior on your way to college, listen to this podcast before making a decision on what to major in.
