You're fine then, family, because it'll definitely do both of those things. My prose improved tenfold, I got my first publication, and despite being silent in class and avoiding everyone I even became friends with one of my professors, who tried to hook me up with internships at various lit mags. I had to decline because it was too scary, but if you're not a retard like me then you really shouldn't have any trouble.

I started and didn't finish a creative writing years ago. One student was encouraged by a teacher to submit his manuscripts to a publisher friend, got a multi book deal for his young adult series.
Another student from my class ended up becoming quite a big deal winning a few young writer awards and getting his debut novel published at 25. Hasn't been a notable novel but he got a grant almost immediately after that to write the next one and he'd be getting paid from the publishing deal. I can't imagine a better existence than being able to live off my writing.

Most is a blatant lie, most are just normal people that have been trained so that they're more disconnected while doing surgery, as you'd need to be. It's why no hospital would let a surgeon operate on their own family, or on someone they knew, because they're not able to maintain that impartiality then.

At my university, it's basically anthropology, sociology, and folklore thrown in one degree. It's more or less the same at other universities, but with other related disciplines thrown in (history, English, archaeology, etc).

I admit it's low tier, but I studied it because I found it interesting

Go on any online job posting website and try searching the keyword "physics" .

Now, try to find an ad for a job that doesn't require "expert proficiency" in 6 different programming languages, and X many years of work experience. The only jobs that will be left are tutoring and teaching jobs for 13 bucks an hour, most of them still require teaching certifications.

Now do the same for Biology, Math, and Chemistry. Hopefully this should help clear up any misconceptions you had in the value of a STEM degree.

The anti pure maths degree is mostly just letting people know it's not a "any job you want 300k starting" degree like those shitty old memes said. If you love something, and there's anyway you could possibly live off it, you should do it.
>>
>>25915260
Good for you man, you did college the right way. you got on good terms with a few people not a big network but a good one. thats how you do college and get jobs. robots don't understand that, they don't look for people to get them letters of recommendation, they don't look for internships during their time getting their degree, they just get the degree and hope it will land them the job.
>>
>>25915280
That's strange, I have no problem finding jobs after a quick search for physics. And besides, if you have a physics degree, you are kind of expected to know how to program.

Hint: just because an ad doesn't say physics directly doesn't mean it won't be applicable.

>>
>>25914841
I don't think its as bad as you make it out to be.

Most patient's that clinicians see are generally people who are already dieing (elderly) or have abused their body in some way (smoking, diet).

I act (and probably other clinicians) on the idea that we are stopping or slowing down an inevitable process. If some dude comes in having a heart attack and we try to help him, unless I knew him or his family I have very little remorse for something which was already is largely out of my grasp.

Even in an emergency where some kid comes in mashed by some car. Yes I have the ability to help and perhaps save them but I understand that car breaking his body is likely a greater influence then myself trying to fix his body.

The only example I can see where remorse can come into play is with routine procedures were some girl is put to sleep but dies because of some freak bleed or anaesthetic toxicity. Another factor is if you go to the ran over kid and you have no idea what you doing and make a poor attempt at saving a life, rather than a good one which is ineffective anyway.
>>
>>25914841
I see the appeal of being a doctor, but the amount of work required, both to get the degree and to get decent pay out of the job isn't worth it.
It makes you feel powerful and trusted.
The human body is also a really interesting system.

>>25914860
Same here. I don't wanna get to Rowling or GRRM levels of fame or get a movie deal or get rich off books. I just wanna be able to complete a series, some people buy it, some people like it, get some nice money on the side, maybe I still need another job, but at least the writing pays.

The thing you gotta look out for when it comes to connections with writing degrees is people willing to abuse ghost writers in turn for getting a guaranteed published novel. Google Full Fathom Five and Google James Frey. The shit they do.

Give some young person the dream, good money, published series of novel, young adult audience that are the easiest to eat that shit up and buy merch, movie deal talks, all under this nice controlling contract that they can't get out of.

It depends on your uni. Some universities adopted measures to combat grade inflation.

For example the uni I attended would bell curve all course averages down to a 2.0-2.2. They were more lenient with 3rd and 4th year classes but the course averages would still correspond to a GPA of at best 2.7, or a B-.

Sometimes it would be a lot lower too.

I remember the course average gpa in my calculus II class was a 1.3, and this was the calculus class for the computer science and math majors only. The course was thought by a world renowned number theorist so none of the school admins gave a fuck that half the class failed. Managed to get a B- in the course but that still looks like shite to anyone looking at my transcripts.

And when I get done with work, I can come home, study a bit more for pleasure and get closer to my goal of proving some new theorem, no matter how insignificant. And my gf supports me all the way through it. After all these years, I have all I need and pretty much all I want.

I'm a nurse. It's very very easy to get w job but getting a good job takes time and patience. I worked in some crappy settings like a nursing home and a psych ward. Now I work in public health and t is great but the hiring process took about 8 months. I'm also 21.

What's with these econcucks posting these graphs all the time.

No one is impressed by these charts. I doubt econ is harder than Engineering, CS, physics or any other quantitative STEM subject.

I was one of the best students in my class, especially at math, so I went to Ohio State and tried to get a mechanical engineering degree. Now that I have at best Cs in all related courses I've realized that my high school is full of a bunch of retards which is how I was able to get into the top 10. And most of them went to college too, I can't even imagine how many lives have been fucked up by le college meme.

i was in the same situation. i got a job doing web design because i learned to code in my free time. i guess my degree said i wasn't a lazy retard but none of the skills i used from school actually are used on the job

you should try to get an internship desu, even working for free. work experience is important because you're getting a degree in something that isn't a career, but rather a field of study

what did you think you could do with a physics degree besides teach?

i guess it could be useful with some sort of engineering because engineers actually do something.
