i was accepted to wharton, and in the time since, i've had a lot of time to think about my future. in my last semester of high school, i couldn't help but think "is this the most math i'll ever learn? the most about government, history, and literature?" i won't miss science (lol) but- i know my education wont be the same anymore in business school. i read the facebook threads of all these kids who already manage portfolios while i know absolutely nothing about business (no extracurriculars, one accounting class that taught me accounting was boring). i cant help but feel out of place
i feel like these are questions i should have considered before i applied, and i did consider them. in my admissions essay, i wrote how much i like working with people and take an interest in the way businesses and economies affect the world. i wanted to start off big when i went into the workforce. i'm starting to feel like those weren't such good reasons to commit to 4 years of business school.
worst of all, i know there are hundreds of people who would eagerly take my spot and that just makes me feel like a whiner. and i AM driven and hardworking, but i'm starting to doubt my decision. i don't know if im just nervous to learn new subjects or what.
the truth is i'm looking for encouragement to study business. i'm looking for encouragement that will help shake these doubts. maybe that's a good sign.
and yes, i wanted to specifically mention wharton because in the general threads i read about "business vs liberal arts," the fact that a business education was from <i>wharton</i> (in a deified, reverent tone of voice) was some kind of special factor. oy vay. are things going to be alright for me? lol
