    i dont think it's a big deal at all. There isnt really any reason for us listing our potential major. When I talked to an admissions officer, he said that 60% of applicants are undecided. I don't think it will affect your apps at all.

    Not a problem. I've heard that it's better to take sat ii's that you will do better on than ones that you plan to major in. And you've taken biology classes, so that helps in showing why you're majoring in neuroscience
