Hi,

Reading your passage, i can understand feelings of sadness and guilt you have for loosing on opportunity to be in one of the best college for career you are planning to pursue.

When reality is that good college gives good exposure and start, it is equally true that majority of it lies in your hand of how to utilise that opportunity, there are number of examples where even after getting in the best school/college student did not end up doing great in their career, and equal number of examples where students from unknown colleges making it big and shinning, at the end college is made up of students, so look at it as an opportunity and learn your subject so well that unknown average college you are talking about is known because of you.

As far as your concern regarding taking up psychology, to practice as professional you need to at least have masters or M.phil depending on specialisation you choose, and many people have ended up getting into Masters, even when they studied some other subjects at bachelors level, so there is nothing to worry about at this point in your career.

Hope this helps,
