ARON: Hey Mike. What are you doing?
MIKE: Hey Aron. I'm looking at the university course descriptions.
ARON: Oh. Nice. What are you going to take?
MIKE: I don't know. There are too many options. What do you think I should take?
ARON: I don't know. It depends on what you want to do after you finish high school. What are you going to do after you graduate?
MIKE: I don't know. I want to study engineering at university, but I don't know if my grades are good enough.
ARON: Really? I thought you did well.
MIKE: Mostly, yeah. But I got Cs in math and chemistry.
ARON: Oh yeah... they are probably important for engineering.
MIKE: I know. So I am considering trying to get into a different major. But I don't know which one?
ARON: I think you should talk to a counselor. I'm going to go there now. Do you want to come with me?
