    In some cases, of course they're lies.
    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:

    This is what I thought he meant, but then he said he meant all fields, so...yeah. Okay.

    That's why I'm going to school for 6 weeks. If I don't do it as a career, It'll only be 6 weeks spent in school (damn expensive school too... $6,000).
    If I do it as a career, then I'll have only spent a few weeks schooling for it.

    Very interesting comments one the thread I revived accidentally here lol =P
    I'll have to post some other time when I have time though on my thoughts.
    "Many religions within a nation causes little conflict, but two religions within a nation is nothing less than conflict."
    "If you can speak three languages, you are trinomial. If you can speak two languages, you are binomial. If you can speak one language, you are American."
    "Speak softly and carry a big stick"--Theodore Roosevelt. Haha describes me nicely.
