Hi Rachelle! I'm going to be a senior in high school this coming fall and I'm interested in applying to schools as a Linguistics major. The thing is I know what Linguistics is but I don't REALLY. I just wanted to ask how it is to be a Linguistic major? What are you studying and how tough it is? (I've heard it is a difficult field)

Hi! Congrats on making it to your senior year, it’s definitely a super exciting time and it goes by in a flash! I’m going to answer this under a cut because it’s going to be (very very) long. Thanks for inquiring and I hope I can be informative and helpful!
