i need help in this. /: - June 28th 2010, 03:01 AM

i've always dreamed of becoming a children's behavioral interventionist when i'm older.

but i'm getting sooo much money towards college right now from song-writing competitions. but i can only recieve the money if i major in songwriting or music when i get into college.

i'm offered amazing scholarships for music so i can go in full-paid and everything.
i would only have to pay about 18% of my college.

butttttttttt........ that's not what i've dreamed of becoming.
i mean, i love music sooo much. but it's just not what i planned.
although it would be soooooooooooooooooo much cheaper.
what do you guys think i should do?!

You left out an option on your poll so I'll answer but not vote. My answer would be do both if both are offered at the same location, so a double major. More work but many do it, that way you pay only 18% and you do what your dream is. If the major for your dream fails, then you have the song-writing which seems quite lucrative for you. Best of both worlds in a very do-able way.

If double majoring isn't something that works for you, I'm going to say go the route of doing something you enjoy. Being able to have college paid for is nice but it's almost worthless if you get a degree you don't want.

if i were you i'd go down the songwriting/music route.. however.. if you really have your heart set on the other course then do that. you have to do what you enjoy. theres no point being unhappy and having regrets all through your course. although i would definitely look into seeing if you could do both.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

If I were you I would go for what it is you love the most. Yes getting a lot of college free would be really nice its not going to mean anything if you major in that and then dont enjoy it. Try thinking in ten years being a singer/song writer, then think of being the childrens behaviroal interventionist. Which job will make you happier.


You may even be able to get a scholarship to persue your children behaviroal interventionist dream. Try talking to your school consuler about it.


Also another choice would be to try and double major that way you have both. That will be double the work and effort though.


Hope this helped.

I agree and see if you can do a double major. If not, do what you want to do, not what would be cheapest.

It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

Go with what will make you happier. It is no fun to have college paid for, but HATE going to work each day.

There are, I am sure there are other options of how to get college paid for by your grades ECT.

If double majoring or minors are offered that could also be an option.

I agree with everyone else. Do the thing that you will ENJOY the most.
See I made the mistake when I went into sports because although it is something I enjoy I actually prefer performing arts and music. So I'm now having to redo college to get into uni. Although it was nice having the scholarship for sports I can get one for drama/music as well.
If you can do both on the other hand then I would totally go for it.
I'm now doing drama with music combined and absolutely loving it!

Kayla, it is totally up to YOU you're the one who will have to be in that career field for the rest of your life. You should do pros and cons.. Or what you could always do, is go to college with your scholarship, and then decide after college which one you want to do.

I know its hard. I've changed my mind on my major, about 5 times since grade 9.

Let us know what you decide!

I think I'll go for the double major, because I love songwriting and music, but I've always dreamed of becoming a children's behavioral interventionist, so I think I'll do both :]

I have two more years to prepare for it too, so that will be goood :]
