I'm going to graduate from HS soon and I have to go to college.

What are specifically the most practical degrees?
>>
>>18154236
Law, medicine, accounting, computer science, business, management, engineering.

Those are some of the best options for finding a job when you graduate.

>>18154236
EE or Mech.

I used to be in your boat as well. I realized that finding out what you're good at is most important and making sure you have connections in that field. Practicality is useless if you can't network because there will be so many other people with the same mindset (and degree) as you.

Why? I've seen too many people in my college classes try to chase the areas of studies that would potentially yield the most pay out or what they assumed to be practical. However, they were not cut out for the thought processes involved nor the work load. This results in their GPA sinking and lower their job prospects (and a huge toll on money/time if they need to retake classes- which isn't practical in the finance sense).

To avoid this, simply stop asking questions about other things. Ask questions about yourself. When you get questions about yourself answered then try to apply it to various areas of studies and, for the love of god, ask actual people in these fields rather than your advisor or "friends". You will then know what is practical for you.

>making sure you have connections in that field
Well that would be a problem

especially since I would be forcing it because I want nothing to do with them outside of things related to work and job prospects

I won't pry into your relationships but every little connection helps whether it be with family or friends. Sugar coating and brown nosing works wonders later in your life and when it comes back to you, even better.

Go into a trade.

I got really lucky while I was in highschool I was able to take classes in college for free. Right now I am about halfway through my degree. The degree I'm getting can be used anywhere and it can make good money.
>>
Get a culinary arts degree. You will use it every single day even outside of work. Can't get much more practical than that.
>>
Electrical engineering, business administration, administrative assistance, nursing, computer science. Look at the Sunday newspaper with all of the job ads in it and see which types in your area are there all the time. Try to find one with a balance between "makes decent money/isn't insanely competitive" and "I would like doing this for a long time", imo.

>law
Law undergrad here. Things dont look so good unless you come from a good school (top 10) or have really good connections.

What degree is it anon?
>>
>>18154236

Anything that isn't women studies or similar.

Connections mean way more than a degree. Don't make the same mistake I did, and go out and know people. Join clubs, attend events, SEE YOUR TEACHERS during their office hours.
