Hi, I'm looking for some advice. I'm currently a freshman film student in college at Chapman University however, I feel like I've made a mistake. I took film classes in high school and thought it was my "passion" or whatever but I'm not so sure anymore now that I'm actually here. Even though Chapman's supposed to be one of the best film schools in the country, I really don't think I can see myself working in this industry. Not only is it extremely hard to get a high paying job in it, but I truly feel like I don't love being on an actual set, the number of hours you have to work to earn such a low salary. Everyone seems to be a lot more passionate about it here than I am and I'm looking for a drastic major change and also to transfer schools since Chapman's really only known for its film school and I think I could get into a better college if I change majors. I was thinking of psychology or becoming a pediatric nurse since I love working with kids. I would also love to have a job where I can travel and help people. Any other ideas and advice on what I should do would be greatly appreciated!0 replies
