Liberal Arts vs. Undergraduate Business
I am currently a Freshman at a target (Georgetown) and am having an incredibly tough time deciding on what school/major to pursue.
I have long held interest in financial markets (I was managing my high school's endowment by the time I was a Junior no cap), so business seemed logical. On the other hand, though I'm not a stiff and only sometimes a tool. Let me extrapolate.
At Georgetown, I had originally been admitted to the McDonough School of Business, where I planned on majoring in International Business/Finance... the usual basically.
However, now that I'm here, I'm starting to realize that finance and accounting really are as painfully dry as as they sound. Meanwhile, I've been having a great time in my poetry/government/economics class, relatively speaking. Outside of the class, I've also managed to land a position with a FinTech Research Group, as well membership in other selective clubs relating to VC/Entrepreneurship.
Eh fuck it im rambling, you guys get the picture. I won't front, I'm in the comma making business. Bottomline, do I choose the dipshit easy route and stay in the MSB, follow the straight and narrow until it leads me to a BB Gig. Or do I take a risk, switch to the College of Arts and Sciences, and get liberal artsy and fake intellectual with a double major in Gov/Econ and a philosophy minor.
My heart's telling me to pull a dead poets' society here, but my brain sees the Career report for the Business School and the ease of the recruiting process there, and it ensnares me like a Whartonite staring at a line of coke.
Edit: Shoutout to the anonymous analyst who put me in my place. I deserved that. Apologies for being an egotistical child, rather than a right proper gentleman like yourself.
