Picking the Best Major for You

As a student in a college prep school, you will undoubtedly hear many questions about your future plans. It’s perfectly acceptable to be undecided about your college major while you are still a prep school student. Even after you get accepted into college, you do not necessarily need to pick a major right away. It’s best to take a little time to think about the areas you’re passionate about, rather than to choose a major you might regret later.
