The college application process requires many decisions. You must decide if you want to attend school locally or out of state, how much you want to spend on tuition, and which colleges you have the best chance of getting in to.
Many high school seniors think picking a major is one of these required decisions. While it’s great to know what you want to study before you’re accepted to college, being undecided will not have a negative impact on your application. It’s fine for most students to apply to college with an undecided major, but there are a few situations where it could make sense to specify a major on your application.
