Okay, so I'm going to a school with a neuroscience major and a psychology major. Both are good programs, but the school doesn't let students double up with them. In other words, I have to choose. I know that I'll have an academic advisor to help me, but there's nothing wrong with getting advice beforehand, right? :)
I'm interested in earning advanced degrees and going into the field of autism research. I want to be competitive in grad school admissions and in the growing "autism jobs" market.
I enjoy hard medical science (I read medical reference texts for fun), the social sciences (I'm always interpreting my friends' dreams), AND the humanities (I read Dickens for fun, too). I think that they are all important in helping us understand the human mind.
My background in math is sketchy; Algebra II was almost impossible for me. However, I ADORED my high school chemistry and biology classes. My background in the humanities is excellent.
Since my school is in Georgia, many of the neuro majors get internships at the CDC. That would, of course, be huge.
