File 153156031540.jpg - (132.79KB , 757x502 , 1510097214290.jpg )

I move in 8/5/18 and intend to Major in Mathematics, there are four options (Pure, Applied, Applied Stats, Actuarial) which should I formally choose to actually succeed? Should I double major? and if so what in? I'd appreciate the help, I don't want to move in with the parents after school.

Applied if you want a real job. Pure if you want to do research. I don't know much about the other two, though.

Acturial is like accounting sort of. I don't know how to descrive.

Acturials are the end boss of accountants.

Actuarial are accountants for companies, rather than for individuals. They deal with statistics, mostly, to determine what might happen with a given set of starting variables. Most visibly, actuarial tables are what these people produce for life insurance companies, so they can guess at what age you're likely to die (based on sex, height/weight, blood tests, diet, lifestyle, and increasingly: genes) and adjust your rate accordingly so that they are most likely to profit.

Applied if you want to work on real world problems.
Pure if you want to work on problems we couldn't possible test or might not happen in reality.
Applied Stats if you hate life and are boring.
Actuarial if you don't mind having no soul for a lot of money.
