    There are three, not both (2). They are all grammatical. I prefer the first.

    What if I change it to this:

    I think for me to continue with the linguistics major in school, I would have to put in more studying time.

    More natural: For me to continue as a linguistics major...
    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.
