My biggest regret is not re-evaluating my education and switching my college major earlier. Originally I was a biology major for my freshman year, tentatively thinking of going to vet school. The requirements to get a degree in Biology are very broad and challenging. 8 classes of chemistry plus organic chemistry, 4 classes of foreign language, 3 of physics, physiology, anatomy, evolution, 3 classes of English, and on and on. Then last summer I realized there was a major called Animal Science. All the classes are extremely specific, things like Equine Production, Companion Animal Behavior and Biology, Canine Anatomy, Dairy Cattle Evaluation, and such. Chem, math and all those are still required, but not nearly in such a large volume. The main focus of the major is to specialize into a narrower category.
Although a broad major like bio gives you lots of options, I felt like I was never going to figure out what I really wanted to do, if I was only experiencing test tubes and equations all day. I switched into Animal Science this year and got a new advisor who I love. She is so helpful. But I completely regret wasting an entire year of credit hours, all that money, and pulling those all-nighters working on a major that I ended up switching. But at least now I actually enjoy my classes and no more chemistry! YAY!
My question is rather scandalous...
