Double major: Is it too stressful?

Hi everyone, I'm interested in double majoring when I go to college. However, I'm worried that the workload might be too much for me to handle. Can anyone who's been through this experience share their thoughts? Was it manageable, or overly stressful? I appreciate any advice.

Hey there! It's great that you're considering a double major. The experience varies from person to person, depending on factors such as the specific majors you choose, your time management skills, and your general ability to manage stress. Some students find a double major to be quite manageable while others may find it too demanding.

It's important to think about what you want to achieve from pursuing a double major. Will the added workload contribute significantly to your long-term goals, or is there a way to achieve those objectives without overloading yourself? Also, don't forget to consider the other aspects of college life you want to participate in, like clubs, internships, and social events. Balancing everything can be challenging but rewarding if you're passionate about both fields of study.
