From browsing this forum, I have noticed that general consensus pertaining to choosing majors is polarized with these two opinions:
- Do NOT Double Major. Rather, single major, get a DEFINITELY higher GPA than 3.5 (say 3.8ish), network, do extracurriculars, and other relevant activities.
- DO Double Major in something quantitative (stats/cs/math) + econ as long as you're above a 3.5.
I am curious as to whether one of these options is better than the other in terms of long-term professional career establishment and pay. Whether a single major with a 3.8 in Economics or a Stats/Econ with 3.5 will fair better in terms of initial BB recruiting, then exit opportunities?
