A little direction in selecting major please?
Ok, so it is pretty much a dream of mine to serve in the United States government whether it be in congress, or abroad. But it also a dream of mine to work ina large recording studio such as Universal Music Group, and Sony BMG. Knowing that, do you think it would be a good idea for me to attend the Edmund A Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, and pursue an MBA in international business? My future is very important to me; not just my love for my job, but equally as important my future salary. So would you think that completeing degrees in these fields would land me a substantial (6 figure) salary? Also, if you have any idea where I may be able to recieve some serious counseling about my future and making the right decisions, please share.

But don't expect to make that salary as soon as you graduate - you need the work... More

I would suggest following one's dream as long as it is attainable which is sounds as though your ultimate goal is.
