Best Major to Pursue in Top 3 LAC (Nescac) ?
Hey guys, I'm a football player for a top 3 nescac school. I've been thinking about pursuing a career in IB for a while now and had a question regarding what major to pursue.
I understand that GPA and school "prestige" count for a lot more than your major (to a certain extent). My issue is that the only major that could resemble finance at my school is Econ, which here is pretty much an applied math degree. I'll just say math is not my strong suit, and econ by itself is considered to be one of the hardest majors at my school. I just couldn't see myself getting anything higher than a 3.1-.2 with econ as my major. On the other hand, I am confident I could achieve a 3.6 or above with another non "math" major such as History/humanities, gov, etc. I could tag an econ minor along with that as well without too much of a drawback.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. I've been told that if I cant handle getting good marks with an econ major then I might as well not bother with IB… if that's the case then I'm fine with it, I'd just rather have that come from someone in the field, and not my Calc professor.
