Hey everyone,

I am currently attending my first semester at Cal State LA for a BA in social work. I am switching majors to business for the Spring 2020 semester at Fresno State in Ca. The reason for the switch is that I do not agree with so far what the major entails in the Social Work field and the leftist agenda that all the professors are trying to push on their students. I just have no interest in this field like I thought I was going to have. My mistake was not fully looking into the program and I also had no idea there were business programs with an emphasis in Real estate. I have applied for a BA in business administration with an emphasis in real estate and urban development at Fresno state. All I can think about in class and all day is real estate so I figured that this degree option is for me. What I want to know is: is it worth it in y'all s opinion? I know that I can learn everything by reading and through experience (which I have thus far) but I have a GI bill that I want to utilize and save as much of the BAH as I can to fund my next deal so falling into student debt is not a possibility. I currently have 1 SFH rental and I am currently converting my garage into a permitted ADU. My plan is to buy my 2nd home in Fresno when I transfer with a 2nd VA loan and House hack and also convert the garage into an ADU and live in it (Ill live for free that way). I also plan on starting to get my real estate license as soon as construction of my ADU is complete. Any thoughts?
