I had no idea what I wanted to do before I went to college or after I graduated. I think students should work, volunteer, or shadow several different types of careers before they choose a major. I switched majors 3 times while in college and it took me twice as long to complete it. I feel bad for students who graduated with a degree and then realize they hate the field they are in. I also suggest that you get as many scholarships and grants as possible. Do not get a student loan unless it's absolutely necessary. I haven't been in school in 7 years and I'm still paying my loan back and I didn't even go into the field my degree is in.
