Major: Economics (This Major's Salary over time)
I was a transfer kid who thought he had it all figured out. After I coming to Mac I changed my major totally and ended up in the Economics department. The faculty and students there were amazingly welcoming and helpful. The school on the whole is great. One problem is that many kids here tend to stay in the little Mac bubble and not explore the Twin Cities more (mostly because there isn't much to do unless you are 21). The school is pretty good at having various speakers come to campus and at having a wide range of lectures to satiate your intellectual desires. I came to Mac as a die hard capitalist and it actually changed my outlook on life. Now I am enrolled in grad school for a degree in social policy work.
