Tell us what you're taking or what you want to when you get in, if it, indeed, is in your plans. Do you like your course? Are you happy/disappointed?

My case, most of the universities in my country are kept by the government, I was taking Biologic Sciences, but I quit it. I'm waiting for the admission exam to get in Management next year.

As soon as I can actually buy my way back into college, I'll be two...maybe three years off from finishing my suspended Civil Engineering degree. >_<

Currently in my first year at University and I love it. Its really pricey though so I don't know how long I'll be able to stay. I'm probably going to pursue something involving Art History, Portuguese and/or Spanish and Education, but right now I'm undecided.

Well I am only in year 8, so I still have a pretty long way to go. And a lot of time to think about what I want to be in life and what University-Courses I will be taking.
I want to recive a Science Medical Degree in working with cure and medicines.
Or I want to recieve another Medical Degree involving - (I am not sure yet.)
I might want to recieve and Arcitechs Degree, or even a Law Degree of some sort.

Basically I want to aim high, and become suscessful in life like many I think want to as well. Life hand out some amazing opportunities and you might as well grasp them before someone else does.

I plan on going to college, and mastering in music or the arts. But, I'm currently a middle school student who isn't doing so hot.

I'm planning on going to the UC system or an Ivy League- majoring in East Asian Studies and minoring in Business or Chinese/Japanese.

Application process will be a pain, but we'll see. =3=

All I know is that college will be one heck of a ride, considering I'm a Biology and Chemistry major; might be doing bioengineering in order to become a doctor. Hard and long road, but it's definitely worth it in the end.

After all: no pain, no gain.

I find a lot of people go into the arts cause they look at their marks and they don't see anything they particularly excel in.. but then go into arts because they think it'll be easy.

It's actually probably one of the hardest things you can get into because it's so competitive in the real world after you graduate. Just wanted to make it clear to anyone who wants to pursue it.

Though if you have a passion for it, GO FOR IT! It's one of the most rewarding things to be doing something you love! Even if you're not so hot at it, if you love it and you wanna do well then you'll succeed!

I'm in my 3rd year of a Bachelor of Animation (both traditional and digital) at College.

I'm a music major, and I plan to become a music education major when I transfer to a university (I'm in a community college right now.).

I wouldn't change it for the world, it is what I was meant to do.

It took me a long time to come to this conclusion... In fact when I entered college I was planning on becoming a music education major because "I lacked the talent to be a music performance major." The thought disgusts me now, because it simply isn't true. I now genuinely prefer the path of education over performance, and not due to any "lack of talent".

College.. I'm should be in it by the end of next year. It certainly is something to think about.. I'm probably going to be balancing between Science and Humanities subjects, at least until I decide whether I'm going to be a psychologist or a nurse. After spending two to four years in college I should be transferring to a university overseas.
The overall plan makes me pretty happy, and giddy with excitement.

Not many gramatically speaking, but there're many words completely different that mean the same thing, the accent is quite different, too.

I'm in college right now and on the second year as an Accounting Major attending Rutgers University Newark. I originally attended NJIT for one year and afterwards transferred in since I couldn't get in since my high school GPA and also the ACT/SAT scores (those tests are pain in the butt), but I got my GPA up in the first year of college so I can finally transfer. All my credits transferred over, but I still have alot more courses to take. At the rate I'm going, it will probably take 2-3 years until I finish my bachelors degree and afterwards I will go for my masters, which will take another 2 years.

I started University last month. Majoring in Journalism and Broadcasting. It's so different to high school. Much more laid back, but just getting around to assignments = effort. :( Though not much is hard.. yet. Though since the courses don't increase in difficulty, then I'm assuming it won't get any harder. XD

Film and Cinema studies is just boring as hell though and makes me wanna fall asleep.

I've been in college for way too long (this is my 8th year). My focus has been on Math, though I'm now regretting I didn't go down another path. Student Affairs got my interest, but it was too late to switch programs by then :/

I'll be going to University in a few years, hopefully to read Classical Archaeology. I'm really looking forward to it, but I'll miss my school immensely...

I'd love to pursue the arts, really, but if I'm spending all this money on a degree its gotta be something where I can make some money when I'm done. Money isn't everything but bills gotsta get paid, yo.

College and indeed University has always been a great attraction to me, that is why I plan on going to both. As for courses, I haven't fully made my mind up yet but I was thinking something along the lines of Business Studies, Marketing and IT as those are what I'm most interested in currently.

I'm currently taking my second semester at University. I'm majoring in English with a double-minor in History and Japanese. I've been looking into the Teaching Credential Program, and I've incorporated all the classes I need into a schedule that spans about 5-6 years. I would like to finish as soon as possible, but with the budget cuts and the cutting of classes and such, it doesn't look like I'll finish as soon as I want to if things don't change later on (which I hope they will). Though I can't complain since I get priority registration for being in the University Honors Program. I've been lucky that I've gotten into all the classes I wanted to so far.

I've noticed a lot of people aren't sure what they want to major in yet. And if you're reading this on a whim, you don't need to decide right away. You can always go in Undeclared. As a matter of fact, colleges suggest that freshmen go in Undeclared because so many of them change majors and then they have a bunch of classes they took for no reason. It's a waste of time and money, so don't pressure yourself into declaring a major right away. Do it when you're good and ready.

I'm a Senior in High School. Got accepted into a little community college down the road from me, main reason I'm going for my first 2 years is because it's completely free (full scholarship), then I'll transfer...probably to the University of Georgia.

As for what I'll be majoring in...probably Biology. But who knows, right? :)

I'm currently in my second year of my "Master of Physics" course. If you think master of physics is a cool title then you should speak to the people doing Earth Sciences as then you are a "Master of Earth". I couldn't love it more. Very challenging, very thought-provoking.
