    Re: I'd like to be doing sth

    If you currently major in something else, but wish you were majoring in chemistry, it's okay.

    If you don't have a major yet, then "I'd like to major in chemistry" is a better choice.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
