What are the regrets that the latest college graduates have about their education? This may be of interest to those of you in college or about to start...

This is from a recent survey of college graduates. All of these graduates would have started college before the latest recession.  Interesting how the largest portion would have chosen different majors.  I am assuming this is mainly because of the difficulty in finding employment in the current economic climate.  Perhaps those of you on the journey now can take heed in this surveys findings....

    This seems very realistic because college is about exploring new things and if you went in thinking you were only going to do one specific thing and you get two years into it and realize you don't like it, then you have wasted all that time and money. So you have to decide very carefully about what you want to do in life.

  2. From what students who have already graduated and are attending college have told me, it is pretty difficult to choose a major. I knew one person who changed their major SEVEN times. To me, that seems like a little too much. Some advice I've gotten from graduates is that stick with a major you know you'll love and have a passion for. If you're only in that major for the income, you're definitely going to change your major more than once. If you do that, the career you pursue with your degree will definitely be rewarding.
