What should you think about before choosing your college course? Here's a checklist.

Do
look at your interests, abilities, and strengths. Listen to your parents’ and friends’ suggestions, but answer the question, “What am I motivated by, fascinated with, and passionate about?”
Don't
let yourself get pressured into taking a course you don’t want. Remember, being passionate about your course gives you the motivation to go the extra mile and survive four (or more!) years of hard work.
Do
research on the courses that the different schools offer. Know which schools have the best programs and faculty for the course you want.
Don't
rely solely on a course’s reputation. Just because other people don’t approve of a certain course, doesn’t mean you can’t excel in it.
Do
keep an open mind. If you realize that you chose the wrong course, you still have the option to shift to another course and pursue a course you really want.
Don't
keep course-hopping. Think carefully about what course you want to shift to, and once you decide to shift, stick with your decision.
