why i'm in college

Start by taking the survey on page 87. Then consider which, if any, are the main reasons why you are here in school. If you are here to prepare for a specific career or to pursue a specific major or field of study, ask yourself why you have chosen that career or that particular plan. What key experiences led you to such a decision? If the reasons are social than explain that too. If you are here at the behest of parents or others, try explaining what led to that and how you feel about it.
