Today, I met with my freshman adviser in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, in which I am currently enrolled. I told him that I ruled out being in the School of Music and the McCormick School of Engineering, but that’s about it. He recommended I talk to someone in the Academic Advising Center because he can’t help me.
A few hours later, a friend of mine (okay, Shari, I’ll mention you by name) saw an ad in The Daily Northwestern for a workshop for “undecided majors.” I decided to go and see what it was all about.
In a room set for 50 people, two students showed up, making me feel even more alone in this world of decided people. People who know what they want to do. People who can see into the future. People who aren’t confused.
The guy (who happened to be from the Advising Center) told us that we should talk to people in the departments of possible majors, and maybe sit in on some classes. I didn’t really learn anything new.
For those of you not familiar with Northwestern, the university consists of six schools:
-Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences
-School of Education and Social Policy (SESP)
-School of Communication
-Medill School of Journalism
-School of Music
-McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science
Right now, I am considering either switching to SESP, Comm, or Medill, or possibly staying in Weinberg.
Possible majors in each school that I am considering:
-Learning and Organizational Change
-beg and plead to get a Jewish Studies major
I need to decide sort of soon which school I would like to be in, because each school has different requirements. Registration for spring quarter classes begins (too) soon.
Here’s where you come in. You can VOTE HERE (leave a comment) on which school you think I should be in, and why.
I will tally up the votes, and whichever one wins is the school I will transfer into and the school that will determine my life career. Okay, just kidding, maybe not necessarily. Depends on what you vote for.
Thanks for helping me find my place in the world. Really.
