CollegeFactual.com offers Matchmaker platform

Not sure what you (or your child) want to study once you make it to the school of you dreams (or just the school that will take you). CollegeFactual.com has created a 20-minute test to find out what college majors are a natural fit based on your interests. It also suggests recommended colleges based on your ideal majors. Of course, that's not necessarily the best fit either because of grades, distance, or expenses. And since many young people these days end up taking far longer than four years to finish college, mostly because they change majors somewhere along the line, this service can either be a great reality check to reconsider your direction or a funnel from which you will never recover (cue scary music and lightning).

For those of you out of school, are you in the industry that you majored in during college? Tell us how little or how much has changed!

Good idea! So many students go to college undecided about their major -- more services like this could really benefit them.

Though I have already graduated from college, this test definitely got my personal strengths and personality type to a T!
