Finding Your Best Fit Major When You're Already at Your Best Fit School
In high school, I had all the makings of a future English major. My favorite classes were English and history because I could express my ideas through writing. I served as senior editor of the literary magazine and wrote for the school newspaper. My classmates asked me to brainstorm theses and edit their papers. I was inspired and challenged by my English teachers, who supported and cultivated my love of reading. Whenever I discussed my aspirations to study English, my friends joked about my future unemployment.
