can some of the pre-med guys give me some info about it, like what types of courses are involved, size of the work load, etc. I've been thinking about switching over and specializing in anesthesia

Nursing is a hard degree.
Physical therapy isn't, atleast from the people I've asked.

Nursing is hard as fuck though.

How are you civil engineering guys doing?

Considering changing my major up a bit. Do you have to be a math whiz? How does the job market look?

Do you have to be a math whiz? No, but you need to be good at math.

How does the job market look? Bad, same with all other industries really.

psychology

didn't realize there were so many bitches majoring in psychology so my classes are definately a plus, added with the fact that i'm interested in that field.

The F:M ratio is indeed a plus.

I don't want to get into an argument, but that has to be false - at least, compared to other majors. Move around and find a job.

If you can find an entry level job in this economy, hats off to you. Sure, you can probably find a job through lots of perseverance if you don't mind relocating to the right spot and don't mind working for just any company.

well, it is one of the 'easier' engineering disciplines out there, you still need to know how to crunch numbers and know what they mean, etc. As for the job market, its bad like hypoh stated, but not as bad as compared to something like, business/finance where there's a lot of competition. The industry is always in demand of engineers to innovate and build our society.

I'm an art education major currently in my second year, but I'm in the process of switching my major to fine arts, because I don't want to babysit in a high school as an art teacher for my entire life. It's not that much more school to get a master's in fine arts and then become a college professor

^ Do that.

I still think Accounting is pretty much safe. You're guaranteed to get a job if you have some Accounting.

I'm interested in psychology, but isn't it pretty much necessary to go to school for 8 years to get a decent job?

Ayo what are some majors that make like 100k+ and are not THAT hard?

None dude. I can't think of a single industry where you start making 100k right off the bat. 55k seems like a nice even level for BS degrees in something worthwhile (meaning not just psychology, sociology, english, etc -- I'm talking finance, accounting, etc). Your school matters a lot too. A city college student in finance won't earn half as much as someone graduating from a T1 undergrad b-school.
