    If you had it to do over again what would you study in school? And what did you study?

    If I did school all over again I think I would study something in music. I really enjoy music and playing the violin and piano. When I watch school bands perform there are so many instruments I wish I knew how to play.

    I went to school to become a registered nurse.

    Oh this is perhaps one of my biggest regrets in life. I got a double major in Religion (ended up taking classes because I liked it and realized I was only a few classes away from a major) and Sociology w/ a concentration (minor) in Criminal Justice. At my school, you could major in Social Work, take an extra year of school and come out with your MSW (masters of social work). I didn't know about it until it was too late and never went back. I'm absolutely kicking my 19 year-old-self that I didn't do it. But I'm a firm believer in things working out for good and past experiences shaping who you are now so I'm finally at peace with it.

    Accounting is what I would have taken. My degree is in math and sociology (weird combo I know but the soc course kept me sane). I did go back and have 1 year of 3 for accounting.

    Kind of ironically, I wish I would have gone to school to be a nurse...hehe. Or maybe a PA. Something in medicine. I was terrified of math and science when I was 18 and now that I'm 31 I realize how incredibly unimportant that would have been. I'm sure that once I started I would have gotten over that fear pretty fast.

    My major was in Communications with a Journalism minor.

    Most people who are afraid of math and science have just not had good teachers. The majority of people teaching math are not math specialists but a second teachable.

    I would have studied ceramics like I wanted to; and maybe started to take those sciences during what would have been my 4th year of college (I got my marketing degree at the end of my 3rd year). But, I am glad I didn't take the sciences when I was 18- that was when I met my hubby and my grades would have been terrible.

    Steph - I TOTALLY understand where you are coming from. If I hadn't had a major life change when I was 23, I am not sure how long it would have taken me to find this career. Since I found it early, I did medicine even though it was a long road.

    And I definitely had some poor teachers and maybe a touch of ADD in high school. Taking math and sciences as an adult when I treated class like a job was rewarding and fun!

    I am so glad I did not stay in marketing. That was not the career for me! How do people expect 18-19 year olds to know what to do with their lives?

    That was part of the reason I didn't go straight from high school to university. I was 21 when I started and took a year off finally graduating when I was 26.

    I think most people should do that, but I was not even mature enough to consider that as a possibility.

    If I could start over, I would do Emergency Medicine. I would love to be an ER doctor and a great perk...no pager & no office!

    I went to school and became a Registered Respiratory Therapist. I work on the neonatal resuscitation team attending deliveries and NICU.
