488: College Applications Series: Expected Major

28 Aug

We are continuing with our shorter summer episodes and with Megan’s series highlighting the components of the typical college application. Today’s topic: expected major.

Some applications ask you to declare an expected major-how are you supposed to know this? What do you fill out? Can you change your mind later? Megan explains why colleges ask this question, how to answer it, and whether or not you could be locked into your choice.
