    I am a senior high school junior and at this time we’re while selecting our courses. To date a few of the important classes i’ve are AP Statistics, AP Calculus AB, and Physics. Must i take AP British Literature? Because i’d rather not spend your time and for something that won’t be helpful for me personally and can drop my GPA.

    Should I do Business Administration with the concentration in Finance or Business Administration with the concentration in Entrepreneurship? I want to own my own business one day, but I’m going to need to be able to get a job to get start up money. Which major do you think would be better for me?

    I will be getting a $5,000 tuition refund next month. My wife and I have $14,000 in high-interest credit card debt. We need another car that will last us at least 30,000 miles. Should we use the $5000 to pay towards the credit cards, or use some of it for a down payment towards a used car. Or should we try to find a car under $5000 and pay cash? Keep in mind that if we choose to finance a car, our credit card debt is probably hurting our credit score which will cause the car loan interest rate to be higher. We are using 71% of our available credit. Because I have not finished college, my schedule changes frequently, but our debt-to-income ratio on any given month ranges from 30-45%.
    If we use the money to make credit card payments, presumably we would get a car loan with no down payment and our monthly credit card payments would be smaller. I’m thinking this would actually be better because the interest rate on our credit cards is 15-20% whereas a car loan would probably be lower.

    Basically, here are our choices:

    Choice A: Use all the money to buy a used car with cash.

    Choice B: Use some of the money to put a down payment on a car and use the rest to pay credit cards.

    Choice C: Use all the money to pay credit cards and get a used car loan with no down payment.

    I am a sophomore in college, I’m having difficulty choosing a major. At first I chose Finance, then Computer Information Systems, then English (I wanted to write for the New Yorker), and now I’m going back to accounting … I just want to be happy with a career I’ll have for the rest of my life…

    I’m currently a senior in high school. I plan to double major in business and finance in college. First, has anyone here ever done that? How did it work out for you in finding a good paying job with a high profile company after graduation? Second question, what would be a good minor for those majors? Thanks for any help.

    I am in conflict between choosing Finance with real estate concentration and a Minor in Management Information Systems or a MIS major and a minor in International Business which one am I more likely to get a job out of college?

    I haven’t declared my major, yet. I’ve heard graduates with marketing, finance, and construction management degrees all tell me they have the best degree for the residential real estate development field but I’m throwing out this one to everyone too.

    other than the medical field or teaching, what are some ‘smart’ college majors. something that will pay off in the long run (probably), preferably that only requires a 4 year degree. i just lack direction and i figure that if anything sounds interesting i can look into it. i really appreciate your serious answers!
