So I would up devoting my life to the study of Mathematics because I absolutely love the subject. It is inherently beautiful, surprisingly counter-intuitive, and seems to exhibit a logical framework for all that is in a way that I find ever intriguing.
However..., the study of math at a high level is also quite lucrative!!
Here is an article from Bloomberg Business Week, from June:
In any case, they make a good case for choosing math as a major while here in the Ivory Tower. Call that reason number..., what... 132 in the countably infinite number of reasons why someone can benefit from choosing math as a major? (BTW, have you heard that over 80% of statistics are made up on the spot?)
Give it a read. I will await your change-of-major form.... ;-)
