I couldn't fit typing in during the regular school year but I felt it was important and took it during summer school. It helped so much with all of those college papers I needed to type. This was back in the day when we used an IBM Selectric typewriter- way before the days of computers.
I personally think people in artistic professions like archectiture and design are happier with their jobs. If she's into that kind of thing, I would go that route.

On a more general level, especially for a woman - I don't care what you decide to go into, I don't think anyone can go wrong with taking math and science classes. In high school, for example, it was my parents' requirement that I had some type of: english, math, science, social studies (government, geography, etc.) and foreign language every year. Then I was able to choose the rest.
What I learned was that the more we push them in one direction, the more they tend to resist, so pushing is not the best idea. Gentle suggestions tend to work better, but they are going to do what they are going to do.
I've never been a fan of "soft" majors....the more etheral things.

New issue, though, with my computer. I described it in more detail on the Microsoft support forum, so here's what I wrote:
Any advice any fellow FORTers can give?Today, for some reason, the windows startup has been a lot slower than usual. The "Windows is starting" screen takes a lot longer, as does the time to load the main menu, and after I click to log in with the Owner account, there is a black screen for two or three minutes before the desktop starts up. This hasn't happened before and I don't know what started it. I've been searching for solutions online all day and I tried some things, such as running the error-checking scan, the Defragmentation, and disabling some of the startup programs when entering the desktop. None of this helped. What else can I do?
