10 Things Only Double Majors Will Understand

We will never forget the day we sit in the advising office and made the decision to declare not only one, but two majors (what were we thinking?!). Since then, your life has been a blur of homework and tests. If you have a double major, you’ll relate to the following: 

1. Planning is beyond necessary

2. Classes that overlap for requirements in both your majors are a godsend

3. Sometimes you forget one major when people ask

4. You’re more than used to people asking you why you’re doing it

5. Commitment is not exactly your thing

6. When it comes to that ages-old STEM vs. humanities debate, you might not have to pick a side

Or, you’re doubled up on one side of the argument

7. Asking you your favorite major is like asking a mom to pick which of her kids she loves more

But deep down, you know we all play favorites!

8.You basically live in your college’s advising office

9. Nothing is more exciting than a program that deals with both of your majors

10. Your major GPA has way more classes affecting it

This can be either a good or bad thing, though.
