How insane is what I want to do in college?
So I'm a senior this year and I like to plan things and I'm the type of person who likes to stay really busy. So I'm trying to think of what I want to do in college. I take all AP and Honors classes in school, I'm a part of the NHS, I'm the CSC President, a member of my school's newspaper, I write for the teen column of my local newspaper, and I'm on the cross country team. I am applying to NYU, Columbia, Temple, Penn State, University of California, University of Pennsylvania, CUNY, University of Miami, Drexel U, and Princeton. Where I really want to go is NYU and Columbia is my second choice. But I live in Pennsylvania and my parents kind of want me to stay in-state so I'm applying to some in-state colleges to satisfy them. I plan on double majoring in Political Science and Journalism. Most schools require a double major with journalism. So here are things I'm thinking about doing: taking a minor in Spanish getting an internship/job being part of the paper of the school I attend taking part in a sport Now I want your help. From my list of things to do, how many things do you think I can do from this list? I also want some small sort of social life. Even though I'm always been a good student, I've never been a workaholic, where I stay home and study on the weekends, like other kids I know. I've always had lots of friends and gone out and stuff. Which item or items from the list would you recommend doing? I understand a sport may seem like it should be at the bottom but I also have always been the type of person to have a healthy diet and work out because with my genetics if I don't, I'd definitely be overweight or possibly obese. So I know if I didn't do a sport, I'd still take the time to work out. I've also read that people who are in the Journalism field say getting some kind of experience in an internship or just writing in general is just as important as the major. So any and all help would be appreciated.

I think you can do them all. You probably need some stress management techniques, and a LOT of foresight, but it's possible.

I'd say about 3/4 on your list. Sports and internship/job are very demanding if school is also involved. Sports is even more demanding than a job if you have a coach that hates if you ask for even one day off to take time in your studies. The other stuff is pretty easy if you know how to manage your time. If you do... More
