As some of you may know, or probably not, I wasn’t really sure of what I wanted to do after I graduated high school. At first I wanted to go to law school but my grades weren’t high enough to pursue this desire of mine, so I had to choose something else.
I ended up choosing a major that wasn’t really something I wanted to pursue as a career, therefore I ended up dropping college as soon as I finished the first semester.
So, if you’re like me, and you are stuck between a sword and a wall, here are a few pros and cons of changing college major.
PROS vs CONS
♦ You will actually do something that you like, so your grades will improve;
♦ You can use that period of time before college starts again, to take time for yourself, get a job, go on an vacation, just take care of yourself in all matters or forms;
♦ It’s better to drop out as soon as you know you don’t want to pursue that career path, than when you have graduated because then you have wasted 3 or 4 years of your lifetime;
♦ You will be a year behind;
♦ All the money you spent on that year for school supplies, textbooks, rent, tuition will be wasted;
♦ If you take a gap year, you might not want to get back to school and actually drop college completely.
I dropped out of the college myself, and I’ll be starting a new semester later this year, and I know I’ll enjoy it way more than the previous because I’ll doing something that I love.
