If you were me..

and have the listed options in the poll, what do you do? I already have a bachelor of arts and have been applying to jobs but haven't interviewed for anything since April.. the no interviews thing is a product of applying for jobs that only require a HS diploma and therefore am "overqualified" for. My longest stint of employment is as a freelance sports reporter and have two or three short internships.

I've reached this point because I feel that every month I'm not employed in a legitimate field, the greater the chances I'll never be able to find a job.

Barring a total economic collapse, funding is not an issue.

Even though I'd be discouraged, I won't be surprised if I get lots of CP flaming for this poll. It's only natural but I'd still like to hear opinions from people more experienced than I.

Her first job, which she got before she even graduated, started $250k in Manhattan. She got a 3.9, IIRC.
Better than 3.5 AND on campus involvement AND multiple internships AND work on the side will get you a lot of places.

I have none of those.

She was a stoner chick but also a former Rhode Scholar.

But it can be done, if you have a passion for it. If you're doing it for the money with no passion, it'll be extremely difficult.

I might have missed it earlier in this thread, but what law school did you graduate from?

I'm not a lawyer. I have many friends in the entertainment business and commercial real estate that are successful lawyers.

Law & Med school will most certainly be on the agenda for my children, unless they happen to display talent elsewhere. But no history, philosophy or other useless degrees for them.

No way.

I was a computer science major back in the day and actually dropped out to work at my friend's software company that he started. When I got to the point where I couldn't do it anymore (job sucked ass) I went back to school and majored in English while taking a few philosophy classes. I found philosophy to be almost as challenging as Calc/programming classes. Philosophy was such a hard subject to grasp.

They're hiring inside sales representatives at ADT Security. Looks like solid pay.
