Sometimes you become paralyzed because you think no matter how much information you have gathered, it's not enough.  FACT: People who continually look to gather information indefinitely put off making a decision. Don't let this happen to you. Working with one of educational and career counselors we can help you to collect enough information so you can make a decision about your major and your potential career. Realize even after you make that decision, you can continue to collect information and evaluate whether it was the right choice for you.
