I started out in Mechanical Engineering and quickly figured out that it was something I was not interested in. I then changed to Mathematics because it was something that came natural and was interesting.
The school I went to made you select an "area of interest" in addition to your Math degree. This was essentially a minor. I cant remember them all but Actuary, IST, Statistics were a few of them.
The first year and a half to two years weren't too bad but it really begins to challenge you when you get into the theory and proof parts of it. You really have to dedicate yourself when it comes to certain areas like Game Theory and Calc2/Calc3 proofs.
I ended up getting into Reliability Engineering after college and have been doing it for 6 years now and love it. There are a lot of math majors in my field so that could possibly be another option.
