Looking back on it, I agree with this mentality now. Getting a 4 year degree in flight is a complete waste. I can get a minor in flight, and get all the way up to my MEI having only taken 11 classes at UND.Well from my experience, I can tell you that of every captain I have flown with that had an aviation major NOT ONE was happy they did it and EVERY ONE wishes they majored in something else.
Also, if you are looking to fly for the airlines at any point in your career i would HIGHLY recommend reading the book HARD LANDING or FLYING THE LINE (history of The Airline Pilots Association). I can not overstress this enough. If you don't learn the history of the industry, you are bound to repeat it.
