Agricultural Economics, so I picked social sciences even though it has aspects of business and the natural sciences.

I checked the Math/CS box even though I went on to a career in physics. As an undergrad I took more math than physics and tutored and graded math more than physics.

I also got my graduate degrees in something other than math, and I tutored more math than anything else as well, though I also tutored some physics, chemistry, and spanish.  I think I figured out that I like the applications of mathematical models to the physical world more than I like pure math, although I think that if I had experienced Ted Kaczynski's epiphanies early on, the way he did, I might have pursued higher math as a career.  I still find myself distracted by abstract patterns which may or may not have physical application.

Voted 'natural sciences' -- currently pursuing a double major in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology. Definitely going to do at least a minor in Spanish as well, and perhaps something with Biochemistry/Latin/Poli Sci. Having begun college as a junior as a result of my AP credit, I have lots of options, but unfortunately I'm an overambitious person and there's no way all the stuff I'd like to do could ever be accomplished. I hope to graduate after autumn semester 2018 -- no idea what I plan on doing after that.

Not allowing for multiple responses?  Rude.

My majors in undergrad were Linguistics and Psychology.  Linguistics may be considered a member of the humanities or social sciences depending on the school (MSU considered it in the humanities, as UMD does, but I think in terms of theoretical outlook it's best described as a social science).

Flight Science was what I was going for when I started back in the stone(d) age, but then I dropped out and joined the USAF where I got training towards a Computer Science degree, but I never finished as I didn't need to.  Experience is more important than a piece of paper, at least to some employers.

Was that wrong? Should I have not done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing was frowned upon, you know, Ďcause I've worked in a lot of offices and I tell you people do that all the time.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.
