So... For about 5-6 years now, I've thought I was most certainly going to major in computer science and do something with that. However... I was never really sure where that would take me. I'm a junior in high school, so I feel like I'm running out of time to make a decision, and I want it to be the right one.
I started taking Psychology this year, and the neurological aspect of the class is so fascinating. I love learning about the way the brain works and interacts with the rest of the body. I'm not sure if this is a weird phase or if I should pursue it further. On one hand, majoring in computer science would take me 4 years. Depending on what I would do with neurology (i.e. neurologist, neuroscientist, neurosurgeon), I could be in secondary education for 8+ years, and I'm worried if I can truly commit to that. I know I make the grades to get into a good school, and I take mainly college classes already. So I'm not worried about the workload or grit of the education process, just worried if its really the right choice and if I should commit the rest of my life to it.
Anyway, I'm just curious if anyone has any advice or can offer up some opinions. Thanks.
