LOL - that's so true. There will always be someone better than you, ahead of you, etc. You gotta do stuff for yourself and forget everyone else.I'm going to ask you what my father asked me when I first dropped out of college and cried about being behind. Who are you competing with? Things come up, things change, majors change... whats wrong with taking more than 4 years? It took me MONTHS to realize that the only person I'm in a race with is myself. Its hard to look at your education and think of yourself as being "behind everyone else". But what's the big deal? How long you take is up to you and how long everyone else takes is up to them. As long as you get it done, who cares?
Exactly! If you get there in the end, why does the length of time matter? You made it, you took the same classes as the people who took a shorter time, and you are just as qualifiedLOL - that's so true.

...every major is what you make of it. I know art and women's studies majors who have worked incredibly hard. I don't think it's right to say their degree was any easier to get.
You are definitely correct that some majors require fewer classes and conceivably don't take as long to complete... My qualm was the fact that you said:Actually, those majors ARE EASIER because they dont require alot of classes and units therefore, someone can EASILY get a bachelors in one of those in less then the typical 4 years. They are not comparable to a degree in biology, math,engineering, business etc...NO WAY..these majors, amongst many others, take alot longer and reuquire alot more classes therefore making it harder for someone to finish up before 4 years. You clearely missed my point.
You are definitely correct that some majors require fewer classes and conceivably don't take as long to complete... My qualm was the fact that you said:
"Any legitimate major takes awhile to complete."
"( most, majors like art,women studies, social and life sciences are easier....let me not even get started on majors like liberal arts..are those even legitimate??)"
Your use of the word "legitimite" sounds like an attempt to discredit other majors as "not as good."
I think it also depends on the school: At my school, econ is considered one of the "lighter" degrees in terms of classes required.
Light? ha, OK.
off topic slightly, but didnt you mention somewhere else in this forum that you are still in college and were graduating this year with a statistics degree and didnt know if you wanted to pursue law school etc?? But, then somewhere in this thread you said you graduated MANY years ago....hmmm...Im confused.
