i can't seem to decide my major....

does this sound ok for you?
well, it doesn't for me...
the problem is that the one who said it is a native American speaker!!

thank you

"I can't seem to decide my major." It sounds okay to me, but is a little awkward, and makes the speaker sound unconfident in him/herself.

It may not be correct English--the proper way to say it would be "It seems that I can't decide my major." But it is a perfectly legitimate utterance in most conversational situations in America, I think.

For me, there is an "on" missing after decide. That's all.

I would say "I can't seem to decide on a major."

Sounds fine to me.
