Jack Baroudi: We have a question from a student that says, “Hi, I’m admitted to UD as business undeclared. Will this put me behind and can I still graduate on time and will this prevent me from having a double major.” And I know you came in – were you business undeclared or just undeclared in general?

Rafi Turitz-Sweifach: I came in business undeclared and I came in with no AP credits, no anything coming in and I’ve been able to successfully pick up my major, three minors – and I know people who similarly came in business undeclared and now are double majors and with two minors. And in fact, I think coming in business undeclared also has an advantage in that you really have your eyes open to what you want to go and pursue, and BUAD 110 class gives you a little bit of an introduction to different majors at the school and it really helps you kind of solidify, like oh, that seems pretty interesting to me or oh, that doesn’t seem particularly like something I want to do. And as a business undeclared major it really kind of helps you hone in on maybe not necessarily what you want your exact major to be but kind of where you want to lean towards.
