Is your undergraduate degree still tempting?
« on: March 31, 2005, 04:47:29 PM »
I just spent four years working toward my education degree (instrumental music)so to make a little money before the big 1L I took a job as the band director at a high school and I am having a blast! 

The kids are great and I have never made so much money!  But more than that there is a real sense of satisfaction in actually doing what I studied for so long.

So the question is, does anybody else have a sense of loss at not following their undergraduate degree into the workplace?

Why?  Do you know of anyone hiring historians?  If so, I might reconsider law school.

Hell no. I majored in English. What the hell would I do with that? I have no interest in teaching.

I'm a crim justice major...but half the cops in my area keep themselves busy using their radar guns and breaking up high school parties. FBI would be cool, but that can be done after LS.

You can add neat things to the end of a letter.

PS - you can also use it on emails and discussion board posts...

Ehh, I don't think I could be a programmer for 20-30 years.

OP, I hear you. I considered applying to MFA writing programs but decided that ls would be a safer (read: more likely to lead to a good salary) plan of action. But I imagine I will continue to write on the side and continue to rarely get paid for it.

As a fellow PoliSci major, I have identified 4 possible career paths: Law school, Grad school-professor/think tank, K-12 teacher or asking people "would you like to super-size that?"
