It's important that you go to school and complete your education. One of lifes early lessons is:"You can't please everybody!" However, accept sound advice and then decide what is best for you. In my experience, most companies just want to see that you are able to "stick" with it to complete your education. There are many professionals who have a degree which is totally different from the job they are preforming presently. As you mature, you will get to where you are going as long as you stay focused on your goal. The job market is very saturated for many jobs with low skill levels. However, opportunity comes from the strangest places. Stay positive, Stay focused and continue striving to reach your goal and success will find you.

What are you passionate about? What do you love to do? Once you can answer those quesstions, you will have the first part done. If you can't land on one path, then go into college open and ready to learn. You never know where inspiration will come from.

If you have specific direction find a college that is a leader in the field. Visit the campus. Talk to professors, students and staff at the college so you can get a sense of the community, culture and environment. What organizations and extracurriculars do they offer? Do your homework on the school. It is a big investment and you don't want to choose a place you don't feel comfortable or welcome.

Narrow your choices to two or three top contenders and find out entrance requirements so you can be prepared and on time with the application.

If you can't decide on a major - then go to a Liberal Arts College that will give you exposure to lots of different disciplines and that will help you choose a path.
You don't have to know what you want to be yet... you just have to want to be something. A degree is just a step in the journey. That journey can change. I started as a Communication Major and graduated with a Business Degree in marketing. It took my 5 years to graduate but it was a great experience. I took electives in all sorts of stuff to help me lear and explore the options. Art, History of Rock and Roll, Geology, Sociology and Theatre courses all helped me to be well-rounded and ultimately find my way.

Good luck!
