Is it okay if I haven't figured out my major yet?

As a junior, I feel like everyone around me already knows what they want to study in college, but I'm still unsure. Will this hurt my chances of getting into a good college? Thanks in advance for the advice!

Hey there! First of all, don't worry too much about not knowing your major yet. It's completely normal for students to be unsure of their major, even as they enter college. In fact, many students end up changing their major during their college years, so it's not unusual to be undecided at this point. As for college admissions, being undecided won't necessarily hurt your chances of getting into a good college. What's more important is showing your passion and commitment to learning, as well as demonstrating a strong academic foundation. Focus on building a well-rounded application, showcasing your extracurricular activities, volunteering, and any relevant skills or experiences you might have. Lastly, remember that college is a time for exploration and growth, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to find your passion and choose a major that suits you best. Good luck!
