Major Decision about Major
One of the things that initially attracted me to Columbia was the fact that its neuroscience and behavior curriculum was split 50/50 between psychology and biology. I tend to have a stronger proclivity towards the social sciences than I do the natural sciences...so I figured this would be the perfect compromise of majoring in what I really love (psychology) and still being able to land a job/go to med school (biology). Is this a fair assessment?? I'm not a complete train wreck in the natural sciences (chem, bio...etc) and I do enjoy natural science....but have to work pretty darn hard at it to excel (or sometimes just break even). I would really appreciate the honest opinion of those who are in/have been in Columbia's program or those at schools with similarly structured neuroscience curriculums. Am I doomed at an Ivy League School majoring in something with a natural science component when my brain is wired more for social science/humanites/art? Or will the social science component of the major balance things out? I know there are a lot of people in my situation: those better at the humanities/art/social science but that are still competent in (or at the very least...willing to do) the natural science...and want a decent job at some point. Help......anyone with guidance.
