I'm presently an undergraduate at Yale... I started out as a biomedical engineering major, but these days I'm considering biomedical engineering + philosophy.

Even if I COULD major in "extropian studies," I probably wouldn't. IMO, extropy is just too interdisciplinary to realistically major in it. Any attempt to do so would probably lead to knowing not enough about too many different subjects. If I could, I'd be BiomedE, philosophy, computer science, physics, math, music, psychology, literature... not necessarily in that order.
