Now let's ignore the fact that this comes from the same institution whose traditionally prestigious law school was featured as having 1 in 3 be
Not surprisingly the Hoyas didn't turn that critical inquiry onto their own programs or graduate degrees.
Some of my favorites are this:
The top 10 majors with the highest median earnings are: Petroleum Engineer ($120,000); Pharmacy/pharmaceutical Sciences and Administration ($105,000); Mathematics and Computer Sciences ($98,000); Aerospace Engineering ($87,000); Chemical Engineering ($86,000); Electrical Engineering ($85,000); Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering ($82,000); Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering and Mining and Mineral Engineering (each with median earnings of $80,000).
Do you see Law right up there at the very top?....Oh wait...nevermind.
How about at the bottom of the heap?
The 10 majors with the lowest median earnings are: Counseling/Psychology ($29,000); Early Childhood Education ($36,000); Theology and Religious Vocations ($38,000); Human Services and Community Organizations ($38,000); Social Work ($39,000); Drama and Theater Arts, Studio Arts, Communication Disorders Sciences and Services, Visual and Performing Arts, and Health and Medical Preparatory Programs (each at $40,000).
So essentially, if your degree has anything even remotely related to the flourishing of the human spirit or helping people realize their full potential in terms of what it means to be a human...you might as well go into porn because that's the only "human" element anyone gives a fuck about.
In today‟s challenging jobs economy, there are some fields with virtually no unemployment: Geological and Geophysical Engineering; Military Technologies; Pharmacology, and School Student Counseling.
While majors with the highest unemployment rates are in the fields of: Social Psychology (16 percent); Nuclear Engineering (11 percent); and Educational Administration and Supervision (11 percent).
As the potential "good watering holes" for employment and earnings get out, you'll see more people flock to it which is a point I've made about pharmacists for some time as many see the future of that profession going the way of the law.
Well what about those
Well I'm sure that the reason why law is in the lower-middle of the heap is because you need that JD, LLM & bar license to realize the full earning potential at the end of the path?!
Guess what the point of this and other scamblogs are?
Till Next Time!!! Watch out the Dept of Education Be Knocking Down Your Door For that Money!!!
