Which type of law?

Corporate but if you don't get at least a B job offers will be slim. Divorce is good too if you have rapport.

Follow your heart, love what you do and the money will follow.
Look into the things she has passion for and find a career that works.

For ex: if she loves taking care of things, a career in nursing.

Good luck!

First couple of years at university all majors have a lot of core material you can complete and then pick a major. Many employers have programs to encourage employees to get certain degrees.

If she just knew a general field..... I can only refer to the medical field,

When I read your response it reminded me, that when interns and residents are in training, they have to take either pediatrics or general/family medicine for their MD. During residency they rotate through all the specialties usually 3 months at a time. It is then they discover their real passion, whether they really liked neuro or cardiac or whatever.
Also read a post suggesting Dermatology. Worked there. Like "cheap plastic surgery" patients. Everyone sues over every little scar or pot mark. They say there are no emergencies in derm...BS....burn victims around every holiday. Victims dragged by cars, with tiny gravel pellets embedded in the skin...hospital rounds.....someone screwed up the psoriasis phototherapy....

you posted she considered being a lobbyist. that's a step below "rat with syphilis". televangelist is actually a step(small one, admittedly) up from such a pursuit. it's a guaranteed "license to print money", with almost no chance of being fucked with unless she really goes britney spears meets lindsey lohan at paris hilton's orgy

40 years ago,, a higher ed would open any door you wanted and started out with higher pay.. We have 6 kids,, 1 went the full 6 years with 2 majors,., 2 kids hit the work force the day after high school..

From my point of view,, the 2 kids that hit the work force are happier,, and making 2 times the money..

It has more to do with work ethic and attitude to go after the golden ring of life than a whole stack of degrees..

A proven skill and passion for it ,,doing what you like will carry one farther I feel.

Unless she wants to be $80,000 in debt at 22 years old, I would tell her to get a job. Higher Education Institutes are way over priced and it has to stop for the sake of our kids future. She needs to get as many scholarships as possible to help offset this heinous crime if she insists on trying to better her job opportunities. :)

Re: which college degree should my daughter get?
My daughter is wondering which college degree to major in. She has taken all the different aptitude tests. They were no help. School guidance counselors were no help either.
She gets straight As in all subjects.
She is extremely talented in piano.
She is leaning towards becoming ananesthesiologist.
But is worried about how obamacare will affect the medical profession.
Please only give positive replies.
Thanks for he help.
 Quoting: help 21775415


Assuming she's a soon-to-be or recent HS graduate? :-)

Have her pursue a degree track that will keep her in school, funded, for the next 8-12 years (Bachelors to Masters to Dual Masters/Doctoral). Before that, she'll most likely have a hard time securing comfortable employment in just about anything.

Besides, taking the potential effects of socializing medicine much further, the entire traditional power structure is in so much flux right now - both here and abroad - who the hell knows what the situation will be in 4 years, or 8, or 12! Better to stay in school than spin her tires in a broken world. Oh, and academics are usually protected from military drafts, should one occur ;-)

Doesn't matter if all of her funding is in the form of federal loans, the more the better! Continue to roll them together year over year, most schools will figure something out if she's a qualified and determined candidate. As much as they'll give you. Within the next 12 years, SOMEONE is going to figure out how not to cripple our students - it's got to happen, and it will. Let her be the beneficiary of the future, not crushed by the present.

Delay. Delay. Delay. Borrow. Borrow. Borrow. Learn. Learn. Learn.

Use the university system as a protected harbor from the mountain of CRAP that is currently, seemingly, everywhere.

Give the girl 12 years of education, research, and academia...if things aren't any better by then, well...you bought her as much time as you could :-)

As for degree program, stay general, float. See what happens as the next few years unfold. Stay agile. Be ready to jump on new opportunities. The world's a changin'...

And here's the million dollar tip (sssshhhhh) - if she's having trouble being accepted by the school of her choice, have her re-apply with a stated major of Jewish Studies. The 3 FREAKING PEOPLE that apply every year are basically rubber stamped with acceptance, from UoPhoenix to Uo-Harvard. Then, once she's in, she can change to whatever as the semesters progress and her track record as a student builds. Just like that you're in - poof, Houdini style ;-)

Because it's not your money ;-)

Federal grants. Scholarships. Federal Loans. Take them all. Whatever they'll give you. And the higher up you go in your studies, the more of these there'll be at her disposal - less competition, more specialization. If she can make it 12 years at a semi-top-tier university, your daughter's life will be a most pleasant one.

And yes, the Jewish thing works, but it's just one example. Any degree program struggling to recruit students is the one you'll most likely get in with :-)

Yes, this is often overlooked and underappreciated by today's HS graduates, especially the ones who are pushed through the process :-(

Parents want their kids to be doctors and lawyers and businessmen, when many are simply not right for the role.

And it's not a bad thing, it's a human thing.

They never should have removed votech training from high schools.

I've seen kids who SUCK at math, and who SUCK at writing, and who were always viewed as poor students, walk into an electrical course and kick - it's - ass! Natural talent and thought process for the role. Those kids will make quite a bit of money doing what they do well.

But you don't get all the other benefits of higher academia that I talked about above. It's a different life altogether.

Again, not worse or better, different :-)

Personally, I'd rather bet on the future, than the present.
