Hi everyone, I posted a while back about trying to decide if I should stick with my Engligh major or switch over to a biology major. The thing is if I stick with my English major, I will have to decide on a couple of opitions: 1. Go to summer school after my junior year in order to graduate on time, which I really don't want to do because I want to use that time for something productive (research). 2. Overload each semester (around 24 hours a semester). 3. Take an extra year to graduate. 4. Switch from English to biology so I don't have to overload, take an extra year, or go to summer school. The idea I'm considering the most is taking an extra year to graduate. My reasoning is this, since I'm a transfer student, I need to work especially hard to make sure my applications good enough for acceptance so if I take an extra year, I will be able to not take a lot of classes in one semester, take more than the required science classes, and do more summer programs and other extracurricular activities, I will also have an extra year to experience college life a little more. I'm concerned if admissions people will look down on me taking an extra year. I keep going back and forth from biology to English, and I really love English and feel that this is what I want to study, and I'm stressing if it is worth me taking an extra year from the bigger picture . I had a lot of this planned out and feel as if I stick with English, I will be behind a year. How many people take longer than 4 years to graduate? Any help or advice would be GREATLY appreciated.
