The Ultimate Guide On How To Choose The Best College Majors For You. This is the simple step-by-step guide that I wish I had when I was younger. This is all broken down for you so that you can make the right decision for yourself and your future…



Most of the videos on youtube seem to recommend engineering, business, computer science, any career in the healthcare field, basically careers that are related to technology. A lot of other advice I hear out there is the opposite which is to just follow your heart and go with your passion. Many people end up working in a coffee shop after following this advice blindly. AS with most things in life, the truth lies somewhere in the middle which is what this video is going to be breaking down.
The average debt that someone graduates with after going to an undergraduate school is a little over $37,000 and that figure is much higher if you go to graduate school.

But this is an average and the actual debt can go much higher, just look at Matt D’Avella who made a video about how he paid off nearly $100k in debt after going to film school or countless other examples.

Now the data is clear: Those who go to college make more money(College grads make over $17,000 more per year than non college grads), but the big question is… Is that correlation or causation? Does going to college make them more money or do people who have the ambition and smarts to go to college end up making more money?

The median income for someone with just a high school diploma is around $34k a year.

Considering only 27% of college graduates have a job related to their major, I think for the majority of them the truth is that they are smart and ambitious and that’s why they end up having a higher salary. However, there are some degrees that are outliers here where people consistently end up with a high paying job related to their degree and these are the majors I’m going to focus on in this video.

Average cost vs time it takes to break even (A few examples):
Communications 5.3 years to break even
Psychology 11 years to break even
Arts 8.8 years to break even
Business: 3.2 years to break even
Engineering: 2 years to break even

Just a little food for thought :)

The first step when thinking about choosing a college major is to write down your interests. Write out a list of things that you love, and honestly you should probably do this right now so you don’t forget. So many people try to just keep things in their heads without writing them down and I think that’s a big mistake. Make a list of at least 10 things that you love doing both inside and outside of the classroom. For reference, here’s a list of 10 things that I love:

Video games
Math and problem solving
Investing and personal finance
Extreme sports
Helping others
Science and experiments

The next thing you want to do is make a list of your strengths and weaknesses. Think about what people have told you that you’re good at in the past or maybe you’re bad at and make a list of 5 for each. Be as honest as possible here, and I’ve found it really helps to ask your family and friends what you’re good at and what you struggle with. This can be awkward but send them this:

“Hi, hope you’re having a great day. I’m taking a class on leadership and development and they gave me an assignment to ask 10 of my friends and family what my strengths and weaknesses are. I would really appreciate it if you sent me a list of 5 things you think I’m good at and 5 things I could improve on. Please don’t be shy telling me what you think I can improve on, I promise I won’t get mad and I appreciate the honesty. This assignment is due in a few days so please get back to me as soon as you can. Thank you.”

So for reference this is my list:

Things I’m good at:
Public Speaking
Problem solving
Teaching/Helping others
Giving others good advice

Things I’m bad at:
Following my own advice sometimes ...
Memorizing things
Staying focused on one thing
Small talk
Memorizing things (lol)

Ran outa space to write, guess you'll just have to watch the video, sorry
