Today, we have a very special guest, Nicky, a graduate of UC Berkeley. Nicky majored in film and minored in computer science, and we invited him onto the podcast because he has a lot of valuable insights and information about important things like selecting a major.
This is an area where many students and parents are stressing out about, and Nicky reveals how he was able to finally declare his major during his junior year. He also shares the pros and cons of UC Berkeley, specifically regarding the environment and the resources that were provided there, and much more.
We hope that you can gain some insight from Nicky’s journey, and after listening to this episode, you can decipher for yourself whether UC Berkeley would be a good fit for you!
I am hosting our final FREE Live Workshop of the year, 3 Essential Steps To Getting Accepted Into Your Dream Colleges (Even if you think you’re not unique or competitive enough), this coming Wednesday, October 19th. In this workshop, you can ask questions and learn the most updated college admission trends and strategies. You will also hear more about our college consulting program, Passion Project Bootcamp, as we’ll be opening enrollment to that during the FREE Live Workshop.
