Mensagem:  Hey André. Thank you for your comments on the subject but let me politely disagree with what you said. I don't think that when you say you're a "..." major this means you already have a degree. I've heard many people using this expression when they're still in college. Look at the example I found on Google: "I'm an engineering major and I have plenty of time to go out every Friday and Saturday night, lead tours around my campus, and am active in my dorm social life ..." Actually, if you already have a degree you won't say you're a "..." major, you'll say you're an engineer, architect, teacher, etc... "I am an engineer major" and "I majored in engineering" have different meanings to me... at least that's the impression I have. Regards
