This may be especially salient for you if your parents are paying for part (or all) of your education.
What are the factors you have to consider while choosing a major? Your Interests, which is an important part of picking a major. If you really dislike what you are studying, you will not be able to achieve well. Additionally, you won’t be particularly motivated to complete your coursework.
