Would you really put it past an educational institution, for example, that claims to have "latest industry standard" software, but was running Photoshop 7 until I brought in a pirated copy of Photoshop CS2 and shared it with the class...would you really put it past them to lie? This same educational institution that promised every student an enriching internship, but instead of sending me out into the real world, they used me to design a new set of promotional materials for THEM as an "internship" because I was so good? Yeah, no, I can't possibly imagine a school lying about statistics.
He means most fields coming from a non "practical" (meaning non-science/math/trades etc) standpoint, like I stated earlier. Political science, philosophy, history, sociology, liberal arts, visual arts, performing arts, etc etc...it's much harder to achieve jobs in these fields. Especially having gone to a high school for the performing/visual arts, I've seen this time and time again. One girl who got her honors B.Mus and even won the concerto award...working at a Walgreens-type place. Girl who got a degree in theater...working at the same clothing store I used to. D:
