i am not sure what major i should choose. i need some help. well here is some stuff about me. i am great at math because i have the highest grade in algebra 2 in the whole school. the problem with math is that i only understand equations and not math word problems. i am good at understand it you can say.=p. i am not really great at writing unless it's unformatted. i like to write about mankind and when the world will end. i love ancient philosophers. i suck at creative writing and i am not good at format essays like DBQ's. i am not great at Statistics but Calculus. i am great at Biology not Phyisics. i know weird.=p. i don't like to read novels because i don't understand it unless it's a factual book. i like the earth and read alot of the different places in the world. i am highly logical and not theoretical. So have any tips?? =)

    Your major really isn't a huge deal. Just work hard to get into a great school and you'll figure out your major then.

    The average student in college changes their major 2-3 times over the 4-5 years they spend there.

    As a math whiz, you have lots of choices: Business, Engineering, Economics, Natural Sciences (anthropology and the like), Digital Design, and tons more--but as people on here have said, you might want to get more info on some of these before deciding.

    I'm not sure you should wait to college to decide--people who have a passion for a certain area have a better chance of getting into a college that has the programs they are most interested in--but you might consider some options--or even a college that specializes in a couple fields of interest to you--rather than make a choice today on limited information.
