School stuff

So this might sound a bit ridiculous coming from a freshman, but what can I say. I worry. It's what I do.

Anyways, my college has just adopted a new grading policy so that the average of a class can't go above a B+ (3.33). Some teachers have responded by tossing that out the window, but are grading super tough instead.

Also, in addition to that, I coasted through high school. So now I have no idea what a "good" grade is. I've also heard that in order to get into a competitive grad school/get a good job after college, you need a 3.4-3.6 GPA. How true is this?

My parents would like me to speed up and graduate in three years (tuition is expensive), and I still have no clue what the hell I want to major in. I mean, majoring in, say, economics sounds fine and good- but what do you do with it? If you're not applying to law/medical school, are there any requirements for other fields, or can an english major go into economics?

Right, then! *resumes normal breathing patterns*
