SO... here's the rundown:
TW normally is good to me so i figured i'd give it another go again.
My goal: To become an FBI special agent in wherever i find an interest in and to help better people's lives. That's all i've ever really wanted to do.
-I am Currently a sophmore(by hours) at Clemson University majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Philosophy.
-I really enjoy my philosophy classes and i hate my Comp Sci classes, i had a different idea of computer science when i was trying to pick my major.
-I do NOT want to sit at a computer and write/debug/run code for the rest of my life, i want to get out there and make a change in someone's life even if it's just one.
-I spoke with a TW member who is currently in Seattle working for the FBI for what is now 5 years, i spoke with him about my situation and he has brought me new light.
-I thought i had to get a degree in a really technical field to get me into the FBI, he informed me that it wasnt about my education major-per se. It was more about your ability to think critically and make judgments correctly as well as Leadership experiences. I told him about my interests in Philosophy. I think it's a good field to go into as well as i actually enjoy reading Philosophy and it is definitely critical thinking type stuff. He also told me that i should also try and pick up a second language, which im sorta working on now (Spanish) i took a couple years in High School and wouldnt mind getting back into the grind of learning a new language and "separating" myself from the 100,000+ applicants that will apply as well.
-I understand that i will have to go into the Military, to gain even more Leadership experience as an officer, as well as find a specialty in there as well (Ranger, EOD, ect) to make myself that "1%". This is what i want to do...
The New Plan
-Change major to Philosophy(law,justice) with a minor in Spanish
-Go into the Military and try to get into a specialty
-Internship in various leadership opportunities to build experience.
-around the age of 26-ish, hopefully have the experience,training,knowledge to finally apply for the FBI and see what happens.
-I understand i may be a bit naive thinking it's going to just unfold like i want it to but it's what i want to do.
I do NOT want to study something i dont enjoy simply to "Make Money". To me that is a waste of 4 years and experiences just to "chase money around". So what do y'all, TW think about this?
