What are you currently majoring in, or what is your major/minor?

I started off college with the idea of being a forensics scientist, so I took chemistry. So I took chemistry. Then I wanted to be a teacher, so I still took chemistry but added a minor in secondary education. But in the last year I have looked into pharmacy school. They pay pretty good, and most pharmacists who work in stores like Walgreen's get fair hours and a good work schedule.

Yeah, I was afraid of going an extra couple years. Seems like a waste of money to me.

I started as a biology major, but switched to geology with some GIS classes as well.
I'll graduate with a BS in May 2009.

May go on to grad school.

Well the degree programs all take about 5 years at my college because my scholarship only allows a certain number of credits each semester and didnt cover summers. Plus, the MIS, Finance, and econ foundation courses are all the same.
