henajane 3 / 5 Dec 28, 2012 #1Johns Hopkins offers 50 majors across the schools of Arts and Sciences and Engineering. On this application, we ask you to identify one or two that you might like to pursue here. Why did you choose the way you did? If you are undecided, why didn't you choose? (If any past courses or academic experiences influenced your decision, you may include them in your essay.)Please be frank with me :) Thanks"Choose your weapon."Darn. I haven't even started the game and I have to choose one? Blip. The television screen goes off andI stare back at my disheveled reflection. How could I choose among a scalpel, a paintbrush, and a mallet?Heck, I didn't have enough coins to buy two if I could.Admittedly, I want to have and conquer everything that I encounter. Our life's journey must start withone step and in this case, that one step is choosing a major. When you picture a map, there are manypaths but only one destination. However, the paths laid out have many different options and offer manydifferent things. Our task is simply to choose whichever path that tickles our fancy. To me, I want toexplore and breathe in every moment life has to offer. But by choosing a major, I feel that everything islimited and cut short.I've never really been proud to say that I was undecided in my major. Shamelessly to say, I was quiteenvious of my friend who had her whole life planned out. However, a sudden realization hit me. Onemay not be able to choose a path, but one can always choose the map. The map I chose was JohnsHopkins because here, "no matter what discoveries you choose to pursue, your only limit is yourimagination." I'm undecided in my major. But I'm decidedly open to all which may come my way.
