I talked to my college counselor yesterday.
She said I probably shouldn't major in advertising, it's too narrow. She also said communications is a bit broad, and that a Marketing and Design double major, if possible, is probably the best. But apparently to get into this field, it doesn't really matter what degree you have. I've heard some people say creative writing, art, any liberal arts degree, would be ok. So I don't know what to do!!
Also, I asked about Brown. She didn't shoot me down right away, as I was expecting. She told me to go ahead and apply, because "it never hurts to have a reach school". So I think I will!
Now my main concern is financial safeties. I need to get as many grants/scholarships/aid as possible, because I'm in charge of paying for it.
