DS is heading off to college/Army ROTC in the fall, he is thinking seriously about what to major in. Did well, but not exceptional at everything he has studied, never has had to study very hard to get a 3.5 GPA, so far nothing "is all that exciting"... (Much more excited about Army then college) -ROTC is telling him GPA is all that counts... DS takes that to mean - take something really easy. -He is planning on a military career, but recognizes that it may not work out that way. -If he stays in, or gets out, he will probably need/want to go to grad school. -Degrees involving current technology; computer science etc, would be quite stale after a 4+ year lapse. -The majors that score the best on the GMAT, LSAT, MCAT and GRE are Physics, Math, Engineering and Economics. Which according to the WSJ coincidentally also seem to pay well. -Of those he chose Economics, through the college of Art and Sciences, so all economics and math, not a 'business' program. -Works out that every semester would be either 16 or 17 total credits (w/a second major in Russian Language) Is this a wise course? Any thoughts or suggestions?
