2) Right now I am really interested in economics. Of course I understand that just because I'm really liking a certain field and reading about it that I may not necessarily want to major in it in a year. But I always thought I would do some sort of engineering thing, but economics is really interesting.
In any case, I was looking at http://www.payscale.com/best-colleges/degrees.asp and it would appear the pay is approximately the same.
But my question becomes what the hell does an economics major do? I'm sure many become lawyers, a fair few politicians, but what do most of em do. I'm sure not all (not even a majority) do any sort of substantive research as scholars. But with a pay rate that high what the heck do they do?
Can't seem to find out anywhere online? Any econ majors out there, who are doing anything? What are your peers doing >.>
I also have a great gatsby project due rather soon. I can't figure out which option to do, and need to choose tomorrow, ranked 1, 2, 3. So teamliquid, which one should I do (I reserve the right to do whatever the heck I want to do lol)
