Alright, Ive had a few threads over the months about school, but this is the most important yet, as I am finally applying to schools, looking at scholarships, etc. First things first, Im stuck between majors. I know you can go your freshman year without a major, but I have been taking Kent State courses my entire HS career and may start college as a sophomore, so I need to have my major planned and picked. Im stuck between 2; Here are the pros and cons: NURSING: Pros: Very open field- Nursing is lacking right now, and places are hiring like a wildfire. Stable; My moms a nurse and has never had a problem finding a job. Good money; I plan on getting my degree and living as a "traveling nurse." This is where somewhere hires you, say Denver, Colorado, and you work there on a 3-6 month term, where usual pay is high, along with all benefits and possible housing. -Me and my dad spoke of this, and if I stayed a bachelor for a while (By choice ) I could work for so many months, then relax and live for a few, then repeat. Live a little. I would minor in spanish, as its my favorite subject in high school, and would be a huge plus for hiring companies. Cons: Not my "passion." New field to me; Ive A'ced all my science and math classes over the years, and am socially in shape, but nursing itself is new to me. It wouldnt end up like I want it, and Id regret the decision. Music Technology/Engineering: Pros: Tis my passion; Working with music, other artists, playing my bass whenever I please and living my dream. Being a bassist, I already have a decent ear for recording and mixing. I have experience in both pro and home studios, and have worked my way with the equipment. No regrets... Id be doing what I love! - I would minor in performance, so I could take some theory and composition classes and finally NEED to learn the material! Cons: Unsteady; Though its steadier than trying to just make it as a musician, its still a hit-miss scenario. Pay could be small, if any. And again, my not plan out like I want. Could turn my passion into a chore; That would suck. Sorry for the mega post guys, but most of you have gone through the college scene/"life" scene, and are of great help. My mom is leaning for nursing, dad for music tech.. of course! Any help is appreciated.. sorry for the mega post, too.
