To being right out of high school and could go to any college you want and major in anything where would you go and what would you major in?

What is your dream job?


I would go to Humboldt State and major in forestry. I would love to be a certified forester and either work for the Forest Service or a logging company.

Thank you Natalie (MrsStuartD) for my Beautiful Siggy!!!

I wouldn't change a thing. I loooooove USD- it was the most amazing school ever and I had a great experience. I majored in Political Science and French because they are the two things I am passionate about. The only thing I might change is that I was originally going to have a third major in media studies but my academic advisor told me it would make me just look unfocused. So I took random electives instead. I was 2 classes away from that third major and I wish I had just done it. I also wish I had done an internship with a news station because it's too late for that now. I also would love to go back now and get a law degree, but that's not really a change. No regrets in my college experience at all!

Edit- One change is that I might have applied for a couple ivy league schools and Berkeley. I had the grades for it, but I didn't want such a crazy competitive environment. In the end, I don't think I would have chosen any of those schools, but I do kinda wish I had known if I could have got in.

I actually loved my school and my major. But I wish I went to NYC.. and a big university, like NYU. They just didn't have the major I wanted. Maybe I'd go for like Parsons.
And I would have double majored rather than a major and a minor

I love going to Virginia Tech and I would go there again... and finish my degree this time! HAHA. I was a Psych major so I'd change that and be a Sociology major like I am now.

Ha. If I knew, I'd be doing it now (for school, that is).

I went to college straight out of HS, and I don't regret choosing the school I did. I think going to college right away was my mistake. I didn't have a real clue as to what I wanted to do with my life, and I ended up wasting a lot of time and money as a result. I did meet Jon there, though, so I guess it didn't turn out too badly!

My dream job is to run a small organic farm and dairy, but that requires land more than it does an education. At this point, the education would be easier to get!
