Major: Accounting (This Major's Salary over time)
You must be upper class, Greek, and not above-average intelligence to fit in. If taking a difficult major while working part-time, only a few students will relate. It is a school for spoiled rich kids who spend their parent's money, take 12 hours (spend more of their parent's money to make up the lost hours each summer), and never open a book. Only a few decent companies hire from Auburn. Also, everyone looks and acts the same. Pay attention to this when you visit. People are friendly if you are exactly alike; otherwise, pick a different school. Auburn has a good football program, but the town is boring.

The tests are only multiple choice so understanding the material will not be better than memorizing it. I only had one class with realistic applied test questions and interestingly, many students failed it. This is why college is a scam unless you take a useful major and excel at it. Memorizing for tests is not valuable to a company. Understand how to use the coursework on the job. Get experience before you graduate and meet the right people.

English is a joke (even though you take at least 12 hours of it). The grading is extremely subjective and I was never required to write a paper longer than three pages. My high school English and AP classes were much more difficult than Auburn's courses. Even then, I had the occasional 10+ page term paper.

If you can get into a better school, go there. Auburn is not cheap anymore and will leave you unprepared for most careers. Without good connections, you will probably end up in Atlanta after graduation (if employed). It's reputation isn't even that good. I only live a few hundred miles away and most people have barely heard of it.
