    If so, I could really use your help with a short a survey for my research. If you want to participate send me a PM with your email and I'll send it to you.

    I was a biology major before I became a sociology major. I couldn't pass Trig and it was required for the degree. So, I had to switch to something with less math.

    The survey is in a word document and it would be much easier to keep it that way.
