I have taught myself calculus 1 and 2 and I am currently working on calculus 3. I Graduate in 5 days and I will attend U of E ( I got into Rose-Hulman but I couldn't get a big enough lone to go) but I have no idea if I should major in math / get a PhD in math or get into engineering. I really don't know any applications for math majors other than actuarial science and teaching. Everyone keeps telling me that I should get into engineering but I am not really interested in any of the types of engineering that I have heard of. I enjoy doing math and have studied math on my own for the past 2 years. I just want advice on what people who know exactly what it takes to get a degree/ PhD in math to give me their honest opinion on what I should do. I was going to get into engineering until a math professor at U of E told me that I was the perfect poster child for a math major.
