These are the things I had to think about along with millions of high school-students before making my decision on what I wanted to do with my life. Choosing a college is only the first part of the decision making process. What I want to do for the rest of your life is the question that the majority of high school students will ponder.

If you handle it correctly your investment will pay off immensely in the end (171). This is why I chose Athletic Training as my major.
