It's completely normal to feel unsure about choosing a major for your college applications. Many students find themselves in the same position. It's great that you have a few interests, and you should definitely consider those when making your decision. However, remember that you can change your major later on if you find that your initial choice isn't the best fit for you. Colleges understand that students' interests can evolve over time, and they typically offer resources to support major changes. When selecting a major, think about your passions, strengths, and potential career paths. It's also helpful to research the programs offered by the colleges you're applying to and see which majors stand out to you. Keep in mind that choosing a less popular major might increase your chances of being accepted if the college is looking to fill spots in that particular program. Good luck with your applications!
