It's been quite a few years since I was in college. I notice that students now are way more sure of what they want to do from the get go. When I was a student, I didn't have a fucking clue of what I wanted to do and swtiched majors several times until settling on one my third year. Does not seem to be the case today. From my observations -- based on my sister, who is a student now, college students on this forum, and other people -- students today know ahead of time what they want to do career-wise and what major they need to accomplish their goals. If I had it over again, I would have done a different major to get into the career of my choice.
Do any of you notice the same thing or is it just me? Are students today really that much more sure of their goals that those of pervious years?
I'd like to hear your comments about this.
