Just like the title says :)!

I'm undeclared, but looking to go into Biology on the pre-med track and attend medical school afterward.

BS in Business, concentration in project management.  I'm thinking of pursuing a structural engineering degree after I wrap this one up.

Bachelor's of Arts with a major in psychology, minor in general business.  I've waffled about continuing, given I'm in my 4th pregnancy and we struggle to find help for our kids with daytime classes which are mostly what remains.  But I have about 4 classes remaining after the upcoming winter semester, so I really must finish.  I have no idea if I'll work in the field afterwards or just stay home and offer volunteer time to local agencies, but I'd hate to waste all the hard work I've put in so far by not graduating.  Heaven knows it's taken me long enough.  greensad.gif

Started out as a Bio/pre-med major, but switched halfway through to psychology (BA).  I now work in the IT field though, so I guess it didn't really matter.

Hildare:  your path is somewhat similar to my DH's:  BA (or is it a BS?) in English Lit; MFA in writing; MLIS.

BS in Biology with the original intention of going to med school.  My 4th year of undergrad I changed my mind and went to vet school.  Love being a vet!  Work about 20 hrs a week and stay home with my son the rest of the week.  Great balance.  Just wish vet school didn't = incredible student loan debt!

Are you working as a librarian now? How was the job search post-graduation? I'm thinking about an MLIS program, just made a post about a Written Communication MA or a MLIS program.
