Technically, I suppose, if nobody can recall who I am, then I can successfully pass myself off as new. So welcome to the boards, Music Man!

Then my mission is a failure, but that doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing.

Hey, I dunno if you remember me as well as I remember you but we've had a few chats. It's great that you're back. :-)

Yes, I remember all of you, but I had been absent for a really long time, so it would have been quite understandable if I were to have been unrecognizable. Well, I'm going to college in the fall, so I suppose there will be another long absence from me in the near future, and I'm still debating whether I should be a businessman or a lawyer (either way I'll be majoring in Business Administration in my first four years). What do the bulk of you think?

Neither; we have too many businessmen and lawyers in the world as it is.

Then again, if it's money you're after, you've probably got it pegged about right.

I'm just looking for a job that I would really enjoy doing. If I make a lot of money doing it, then fantastic.

But how are there too many businessmen or lawyers? If there truly were, that would contradict your point of monetary gain, as an overpopulated profession would inevitably lead to less demand, and thus less pay.

And if I wanted money, wouldn't I rather be a surgeon?

Not really. Businessmen and Lawyers essentially create their own resources, in contrast to teachers where they can only fill up existing demand. It's much easier for a businessman to start his own business than it is for a teacher to start his own school, for a slightly over the top example of what I mean.

But my overall point, made in a slightly sarcastic tone, is to be open minded when you start school. If being a lawyer or businessman is what you think will make you happy, then great. From my own experience with college students, however, I've never been that impressed with those who enter college convinced of their future career.

Not with the cost of malpractice insurance these days (which one could argue was another case of Lawyers creating their own revenue stream).

It's very recently that I've begun to open my mind to possible future careers. Until recently, I had always assumed I was going to be an engineer. Engineering is the stereotypical "you are good at math, so you should go into this" major that had always been inculcated into my mind. Suddenly I realized that I don't want to be an engineer. Sounds simple, really, but it took a while to settle.

Leadership roles and decision making are what had led to my decision of a Business Administration major. The fact is, I'm not convinced of my career, but I do have a slight predilection to the two said careers. One thing I do know is that I am likely to enter graduate school, and I am doing my best to prepare for that. Having a direction to take would be the best way for me to make the most out of my first four years of college.

But your wisdom and criticism can only help, I suppose, so if you would elaborate on your experiences with college students, I would listen with an open mind.

Good luck in college!!!!!


Haha, I don't need luck, but your gesture is very much appreciated. Thank you!

Naaah, you don't remember me. Not with this nick, at least.


Well, I have a pretty good idea, using logical deduction. You were present when I was present, as you remember me. You were most likely a friend of KQ840 at the time, hence your name. You are a fourteen year old male from Brazil. And I see no traces of the person whom I assume this is.

I could be completely wrong, though...

One thing I have noticed from certain students is academic tunnel vision. At my school, the Business School is very competitive with most students entering it in their second year. When these students take general ed stuff, which is where I often meet them, they are more concerned with the grade than with actually learning the material. They go through the motions but often miss what the class is really about. My job would be so much easier if they spent more time discussing the material with me than arguing about their grade.

My advice is to keep an open mind about your coursework. Some of it you will love, some of it you will hate, but you'll get a general feel for all of it through your 100-200 level courses. Not every major is a license to print your own money, of course, but I'm sure you can find decision making skills in other areas than Business Administration or Pre-Law (Liberal Arts majors, such as English, History, and Poli Sci are known for fostering critical thinking skills for instance).

My only sound advice, irrespective of my personal feelings toward certain degrees, is that changing your major is not as bad as some think and that there is no need to be in college more than 5 years (it should be done in 4). Otherwise, just find a major that keeps you intellectually stimulated. Oh, and if you are interested in Grad School, buddy up with your professors once you've gotten on the right track. References are just as important (if not more so in some cases) than grades.
