Tricking my girlfriend
I wonder how long it will take Lucia to realize that I switched hbogo to the first episode of Game of Thrones instead of Sex and the City
Is my marginal utility of an additional econ class greater than my marginal utility of a poli sci minor? (Did I just answer my own question?)
All those poli sci classes on my transcript would be pretty useless though (except Russian and Chinese politics - I used those for requirements). So I guess that puts 3 poli sci classes to “waste”. But then again weren’t those two history classes and JLS also a “waste”? Hell, maybe even philosophy was a “waste”. I could have minored in stat! But does it really matter? I still learned a lot from all of those “wasted” classes, and I think an education is what you make of it - not necessarily what’s on your diploma. So maybe the real question is: is my marginal utility of an additional econ class greater than my marginal utility of a poli sci class? The answer to this is obviously yes. This might make next year slightly different…
The double major in math was a good idea. Proving stuff is hard, but I like the way it makes my brain work. I think my friend (a CS major) was right when he told me that these classes pay off in the end even though we hate them while we’re in them. I just wish mathematical reasoning had more readily available applications to undergraduate economics… I guess I have to wait until graduate school.
