Ahh help! I don't know what I want to be!?

Question:I am going to be a sophomore in high school and I want to go to a good university like Columbia, UPenn, Yale... so far I have a gpa of 3.8, im in the student government, and have participated in the spring musical.
but I don't know what I want to major in college or what I want to become there are just soo many things I want to do!

I want to be a lawyer, journalist, CIA case officer, UN foreign service officer, or an actress. Lol! Something high pay and exciting. For I have high maintenance. haha.

Be an actress and you can act as a lawyer, journalist, CIA case officer.etc. Good Luck!
Why dont you study everything then take temp jobs :)
please chillax... i'm just like you but i don't care about any of that. you'll figure all that stuff out later, just listen to some jimmy cliff and chillllllllllll
I am a senior in college. You have plenty of time to figure out what you want to be. There is a grace period in college, in which you do not have to pick a major right away. Take some classes and live a little and you will decide what you want to do.

Stop stressing. You have plenty of time.
Its ok you dont have to decide today. My sister was in college (2nd year) before she decided to become an attorney. Just plan to go to school for something for now and you can always change it later.
You should be a lawyer. You can major in anything and minor in something else you are interested in. For example you can major in criminal justice to be a lawyer(or the CSI officer). minor in english to be the journalist. That way if you dont want to be a lawyer anymore you will have something else to fall back on.
Keep your dreams high. If all else fails, be like everyone else and get a Business Degree.
Start with getting accepted to school and dont worry about it now-you have so much growing up to do yet and it will change daily! you may find something you love for 10years or 1 year and go back to school and learn something new. It seems like finding out a career is a big stress but its really not-go to school and it will come to you!
You start out by taking courses required in the core curriculum. After your first year, you might have an inclination as to what direction you want to go.
Go to your school counselor and ask to take the test that tells you what skills you have and what areas of work that you would be good at.
You still have 2 more years to grow and mature before you need to make that decision. Most freshmen remain undeclared through their first semester of college, because the transition into adult life will really bring your priorities into focus, and help you decide what you want for your life.

Think of it this way - 80% of working adults are not working in the field they got their degrees in.

Focus on what you enjoy doing, and then think about how you can make money off of it.
You have plenty of time to figure out what you want to do. Hell, a lotta kids don't make up their minds until sophomore year of college! But it would be best if you at least determine a major before the first day of classes your freshman year in college.
well try being more aim higher be self employed...don know what you would do better but you know get rich quick and fast
Im going to be 24. I have no clue what i want to be when i grow up. My parents dont know what they want to be when the grow up , and even my grandparents still arent sure.

Heres the beauty part, you are young, you have a lot of time to decide what you want to be when you grow up. You're obviously a good student, you're doing things to help you get into a good school (grades, extracurriculars).

Start taking a look at what those jobs mean, what is actually involved. Ask your guidance counselor if he/she can help you set up career shadowing in your local community.
You have to do it backwards. Decide what you want to have, figure out which one will get the most of what you have you do that and then you know what you want to be.
Well as someone told me once, it's hard to say what's going to make you happy for the rest of your life. Eventually you just have to make a decision. But you've still got a little while. Just keep up your grades and follow the path that feels right.
Major in Political Science or Criminal Justice and then after you have your bachelor's you can go to grad school in whichever subject you ultimately choose.
Study hard for the SATs and do your undergrad at a well respected university!! Take Drama and Acting for your Art Credits!!
I'd say do a LLB Major studies or Poly Sci Major and then take 1 year of acting as your Fine Arts. Acting pays no money to most. 90% are unemployed.

If you're good at math take some Statistics.

Lawyer and UN Foreign Service sounds the most exciting but Lawyer pays the most. I've been told entry corporate level law is now up to as much as $150,000 starting pay!

In any event, if you join a law practise you will easily make $60K starting.
eve;you need to see your school orientation master and i think he will try to help you if not ask avise to your parent.you know according to me as a student you need prepare yourself as from now to not regrate in the future.
