>didn't do A Level maths so nowhere in my country will take me
>forced to do Law because of my non-STEM A levels
>do work experience at a Law firm

No you would not have survived STEM anyways. Stem have drop out rate over 60%. For guys like you it's 100%.

You should feel lucky you dodged a bullet. And dont fucking do englush degree. Jesus christ.

Is IT really as soul crushing as some people make it out to be?

I guess it depends on what exactly you do, but all around the board I've heard extremely low satisfaction.

I just want to fuck around with computers and hold imaginary power over people.

Well, what should I do then? Is Law the only choice for me? I was hoping to work abroad. Should I do international law or trading law or something?

>I just want to fuck around with computers and hold imaginary power over people.

If you mean get yelled at by some one 18 levels above you who will lose his job if you dont magically recover his files or some other impossible thing that he has zero understanding of, then yes you will have imaginary power.

Then he calls your boss and says you were a complete ass to him and puts you on the no bonus list just before he gets fired .

Is going for a Quantitative Social Science degree worth it? My other choice is Economics.

just join the military and when you get out practically every school will take you no matter what.

Not if you like it. Good money in it too. As with any skill it takes a lot of work to learn and master.

find me a veteran with GI Bill benefits that was denied enrollment to a university they applied to.

it's a guaranteed pay check for the school that's even better than regular financial aid. Any school that accepts federal funds won't risk all their money for turning down an application from a veteran.

outside of certain specialties there's zero reason to get your post-secondary education outside of the US
