I quickly decided that I didn't like business and that I wanted to drop out, but the Associate Dean told me that it would be worth it for me to stay in. So I did. I also thought I wasn't going to be able to find a job, but I did find one before I graduated (I didn't accept it and took a few months to find another job). I have now been at that company for 10 years.
I wish I would be smart enough and be able to work hard enough to get a more technical degree but sadly I'd probably get the same degree.
Think long and hard before getting one of the "unpractical" degrees and do anything you can to not take on debt.
I have been at BYU for the past few years now, with a few semesters left. I am continually impressed by how much this institution, its staff and faculty, and even its students are constantly trying to improve everything about this school. Each year, the rankings for various programs (business, law, accounting, nursing, art, and theater, to name a few) keep rising. There is an amazing atmosphere here that helps everyone feel included, welcomed, and successful. While the coursework is very demanding, in the end, you get a top-notch education, and it makes all the hard work and effort worth it.
Anyone who attends college knows that it is not just about classes though. The social atmosphere is very fun, active, engaging, and lively.
There are so many things to do on campus and off campus, and you have the reassurance that you will be with a good crowd of people due to the strict honor code in place. Many people who have never been here think the honor code (with dress and grooming standards, zero alcohol/tobacco/drugs, and morality standards) is too restrictive, but as someone who has lived it, I can tell you firsthand that it actually is very freeing. When you are not entangled with all of the addictions, distractions, health issues, side effects, financial issues, and emotional problems, you really can focus on your schooling, and on developing a rewarding social life as well.
The campus is beautiful, and the experiences you gain here are even more so.
