    That bold part really says it all. Pick something you *want* to do. No amount of money is worth being miserable for the rest of your life. Quite a few doctors would tell you the same thing. :smile: Pick something you like and pursue it. If you don't know what that is, no problem. That's normal. Just try some things out until something really catches your attention.

    Go to a university that offers all of these as choices. You don't have to declare your major or the rest of your life before you enter college. I know it feels that way sometimes, with everyone telling you how you have to go to college and you have to fill out all these applications, etc. The vast majority of people change their major in college (for many reasons). So pick a good school that offers majors in all your interests and if you decide incorrectly you can change.
    Good luck.

    If you find something you love to do you won't want to retire at 45 you'll want to keep doing it! :)
