I just wanted to get some advice for my situation. I'm in my first year of college at a CCC with a gpa of 3.67. I'm aiming to transfer to Berkeley, LA, Irvine, and Santa Barbara with the possibility of applying to USC.
I always thought I was sure that I wanted to psychology, lately I have been rethinking it. I've declared it as my major just because its what I love. I think that going with what I feel most strongly about would be the safest option. The reason I have been rethinking it is because I am unsure of what I want to do with. I want to make good money and I used to think I would just practice psychiatry but I am not exactly sure if that is what I want to do. I've also been thinking about teaching psychology but I have no idea how that would work out. Mostly I have been thinking of going into the medical field, doing what-I'm not so sure. I think I want to work in a hospital or something.
Time is running out and I have to apply for transfer by this november. I don't know if I should anticipate going to grad school later or maybe medical school. Should I plan on doing pre-med? Does that mean I should start taking different science courses now? Or can all this just wait until I transfer?
The only thing that I've told myself to do right now is to concentrate on IGETC, and major requirements for berkeley and LA so that I can get in first. Then worry about the rest after..
