I’m having a serious mid-college crisis. As a philosophy and Spanish double major, with a French minor, I love my fields of study. I finished all of my GEs, so I’m taking only those classes relevant to my chosen specializations.
I have also always known that I wanted to go to law school after graduation. But recently, I’ve been considering a dual JD/PsyD program, which would basically train me as a psychologist and a lawyer. This would allow me to better examine psychological issues underlying many legal issues.
But these programs are very difficult to get into, and my only psych class ended in a C+ (it was a bad year for me, for personal reasons – not a measure of my capabilities), which doesn’t recommend me well to such a competitive program.
So I’ve been considering swapping my Spanish major and French minor for a B.A. in psych. I’m a little nervous about the math involved, as I’m not a math person by any means, but I am deeply interested in the more social aspects of psychology.
I have about six weeks until course scheduling, so I have to decide by then. I can still graduate on time, even if I switch. And I still plan on keeping my philosophy major, without a doubt.
Have any of you ever had mid-college crises? How did you deal with them? What did you do? Should I switch?
