What if I don't know what I want to major in?

Hello, I'm a junior and I'm starting to think about college, but I have no idea what I want to major in. How can I choose a college without knowing my major, and will it hurt my chances of getting in if I'm undecided? Thanks!

Hey there! It's completely normal to feel unsure about what you want to major in as a junior in high school. Don't worry, many colleges accept students who are undecided, and it's not uncommon for students to change their major once they're in college. When choosing a college, consider factors like location, size, campus culture, and available resources. You might want to look for schools with a wide range of majors, so you have plenty of options to explore. Once you're in college, you can take a variety of classes and talk to professors and other students to help you narrow down your interests. Remember, your major doesn't define your entire career path, and many people end up working in fields unrelated to their major. So, focus on finding a college that feels like the right fit for you, and trust that you'll find a major that aligns with your interests and goals as you learn more about yourself. Good luck!
