How did you pick your college major?

Did you pick your major because it was your passion. For high earning potential. Because it required the least amount of credits. Maybe Mom and Dad suggested it to become a part of the family business / tradition.

If you did not attend college what would have influenced your choice of a major.

    May 24 2012: Pick something that you are passionate about and you will succeed. You shouldn't chase after financial happiness because if you do, you will never be content with yourself. Find something you love to do and do it well. And always remember, You don't need to be good at everything, you just need to find at least one thing you are good at and try to do your best in that.
