I am 16 years old and I’m in Tenth grade. I have two years of school left. Next year I am supposed to start applying for colleges. But the thing is,
I don’t really know what I want to do or where I should do it. It’s my dream to become an officer in the air force and that’s what I’m going
to do, I’ve got my mind set on that. But again, I don’t know what to go to college for.
I always thought id major in computer technology and minor in astronomy. But as I get older I realize that the astronomy topic is more of a
hobby/interest than a career field. So I figured id minor in business. But again, another dilemma. I don’t know what to do for computer major, and I
don’t know what to do for business minor. I already know I don’t want to do designing or coding. But there’s so much more, unless I can just
take a general computer applications/technology course. And for business id like to know what kind of businesses I can get into, or if, again,
there’s a general business course. Or I could double major in computers and business. I want to get the combination right for the best chances of
becoming an officer and making the most money, while in the military and during retirement. And last but not least, my final dilemma. I don’t know
where to go to college. I’d like to go to a college rather than a community college. I’d like to stay closeish to home (western PA) but I
wouldn’t mind venturing out too far.
I realize it’s my future and only I can make the decision. but like I said before, id like to get the most money, not that I want to sound greedy
and I don’t think money is everything, but nobody really in my family is very comfortable financially, other than my uncle who is a retired air
force sergeant, and he’s not doing all that much better than the rest of my family.
But anyhow, like I said I know its my decision but if someone’s maybe going through this process now or has done this or has any experience in this
I would really appreciate some advice.
Thanks a lot for reading,
