I used to spend a LOT of time struggling through reading the textbooks and everything religiously and I got A's, but I slipped into a major depression and am unable to exert hardly any effort... even less than my aforementioned friends now.
I'm also confused because I think I may be more interested in psych/med related fields. Help.
I find that the general business classes are pretty easy. The accounting classes are the only ones that really make me work hard. Intermediate financial accounting 1 & 2 are nightmares. (To answer your question: I always keep track of accounting majors on this forum,)
I like medicine way more than accounting too but it's really hard to get into nursing/radiology/DMI programs. Med school and pharmacy is even harder to get into. At the local city college here, there were 900 applicants for 100 spots in the nursing program. And the damned thing is they do it by lottery, not by GPA in the prerequisites. With accounting, they will let anyone in. It's not an impacted major but then they flunk a whole bunch of them in intermediate financial accounting (weed out classes).
