Which college degree is the most /fa/ ?

Is your uni /fa/?
>>
A /fa/ degree is one that you learn simply because you love the subject and not because it is /fa/, profitable, or in demand.
So basically most liberal arts
>>
Mcgill arts
Get get me fucclads
>>
>>8619393
What about people who love sciences just because of the subject?
>>
>>8619367
Most of the shitty/female ones.

SO shit like liberal arts/psychology/ languages
>>
what is uni?
>>
>>8619367
I got a PhD in sick beats
>>
Macaulay Honors College. Get to go to /fa/ art museums and shit in the city.
>>
>>8619405
This does indeed happen in the sciences, but I have never encountered an engineer who has anything to say about his discipline other than how much money he'll be making after he graduates.
>>
>>8619414
-versity
>>
>>8619413
>psychology
>shitty/female

How does that make you feel?
>>
>>8619405
Same general idea.
I can't say I'm entirely true to loving knowledge. It isn't necessarily wrong to want to profit off of something you enjoy, because I think a lot of people are hypocritical at that point.
But >>8619429 is right, there are a lot of people who go into engineering because they read and thought it was cool and heard it is in demand and wanna make money.
Personally, I love sciences and want to go into it because I love space. But a hint of me worries about job security and another hint of me believes I'll make bank making it wonderful.
Basically, as long as you are doing what you love for the sake of loving it, it is still pretty /fa/ in my opinion. Doesn't mean you can't want to have a greater income, but don't be a doctor because you heard they make money and you kinda like helping people you guess.
That's just my two cents.
>>
>>8619454
I don't understand what you meant to imply.

Like 80% of psychology students are females in my country. Its a small country so it might differ, yeah.
>>
>>8619456
Why would doing a degree just cause you love it make it /fa/?
>>
>>8619429
Then you've met some vapid engies and codemonkeys.
>>
I'm not going to try and pick out what major is the most effay, because that just seems ridiculous. Whatever the fuck that you are passionate about, assuming that you have any form of taste and self-consciousness, can be effay.

>>8619489
People who can develop their own sense of style and exude authenticity are the coolest motherfuckers around. Being comfortable and loving what you are studying is a mark of knowing who you are, a kind of confidence that is usually pretty /fa/.


As to whether or not my school is /fa/, absolutely not. Start-up tees and sweatpants on most guys, however some are pretty firmly frat/attempted prep. I know there's at least one kid on campus with cps (that logo is not fucking minimal, /fa/ taught me to recognize those shoes from like 100 yards), and another dude used to rock a man-bun and flyknits and looked pretty good. More or less regular old college clothes though.
>>
>>8619489
Because doing a degree either because
-you were told it was /fa/
-you think it will make you money
-your parents told you
and something else is about as far away as /fa/ can get.

it is important to note that it isn't necessarily about loving the career path, but more about loving the pursuit of knowledge. Because you can love working at WalMart but that doesn't make it /fa/ IE you go to college because you wanna learn more about something you love, not just because you wanna work in it. It is somewhat difficult to explain.

That is why liberal arts are so /fa/, because the only people who do that shit love what they learn. Most of them accept that they can't do shit with their degree in their field, and only do it because they love to learn about the subject.
>>
>>8619473
>implying I was implying

The doctrines of those who would endeavor to map the human psyche aren't for the faint of heart. Coddling people through faux psychotherapy isn't what psychology is about, it's just what neocortically challenged homozygotes would have you believe.

I'm studying Criminology, not sure if effay. Sometimes I think I should've gone for something petroleum-related just for easy money.

Ideally, I just want to be a rentier/open my educational center, fuck 9 to 5 jobs or fixed schedule or having a boss. Universities are not /fa/, unless they are Ivy League-tier and you do good.

I know, being stuck in a shitty job wouldn't be worth it. I just think it'd be a large waste of my life to go for a low paying job just cause I'd genuinely enjoy it. Like I would love to pursue music, but know that it's really hard to get anywhere there.

Not nearly as much as other kinds of engineering, it's about on par with MechE. It's the kind of thing where you can take all day to draw up a plan and enjoy yourself, listen to music or a podcast while you do it, or finish it up in an hour if you forgot that it's due after lunch.

Don't worry about these idiots.

What better generation than ours to try and further a science, that in the grand scheme of things, is in it's infancy. I see it as an endless enigma with new challenges everyday. If enjoying my job isn't /fa/ enough then I don't really give a fuck.

>>
>>8621583
Probably doing medical physics. Great pay and there is a good program in my area, and maybe i can volunteer in a poor asian country or something for a while to escape Aus.
Meteorology/numerical modelling of oceans and climate interests me but it seems a lot less profitable and for plain old meteorology they can apparently send you wherever they want which would be fucked.

College and University are different things. College is like McDonald's. You get a cheap, fast degree.

I go to one and have seen quite a few find out the hard way that the prestigious name on your degree doesn't mean shit to employers . Many minorities/females who study racial/gender studies, music or film are SOL upon graduating. Even some of the really bright kids I've met with okay degrees (Government/Politics, International Relations, etc) are unable to find a decent job. It's sad to see them apply to equally poor post-bachelors programs so they can become subject to even more debt.

There are intelligent people who make it in the real world with crap degrees from those schools. I'm speaking to the many who matriculate with the aforementioned erroneous belief (that a degree from an amazing school will get them a great job subsequent to graduation). I guess it also has to do with their mindset (stemming from that view) which induces them to be satisfied with barely passing some classes and graduating with a low gpa.
Perhaps this phenomena only occurs at my uni, or among those I've met and hang out with, but I have feeling people attending other elite schools experience this often.

If your GPA is low, especially in humanities, then of course you'll have trouble getting a job.
Also, the universities I talked about are extremely selective and the people who get in are mostly very ambitious and don't lack motivation at all. No lazy fucks are going to get into a top Ivy.

My father studied philosophy (I think) at Brown, which is the weakest Ivy. Yet he's at Blackstone now and is doing much better than most engineers and scientists who work for top tech firms. What matters is drive and will to succeed, the degree is irrelevant.

Yes, they're full of those overachieving starlets who were top 3 in the class in high school, but when it's several thousand them competing against each other, quite a few will be at the bottom (relative to their peers).


>What matters is drive and will to succeed, the degree is irrelevant.

So we're in agreement
>>
>>8627620
>>8627665
Just to clear things up, when I say the degree is irrelevant, it's because employers, when they see the name of the university you went to, know you're not a fuckup. And even if you managed to get into Harvard as a fuckup, which is highly unlikely, the interview process for top firms will make it even more unlikely for you to get in.

If you didn't go to a top uni, and instead went for a college most people could get into, employers know that you're more likely to be dumb/lazy than an Ivy grad. Therefore, they'll pay attention to your major since it'll be a good indicator of how hard working you are. If you did philosophy, psych or whatever, you won't get in unless you networked like a motherfucker. If you did math, physics, stats or engineering, it's another way of telling your potential employer that you're willing to work to succeed.

>>8627736
I'd say it entirely depends on the industry. For a job in information security or code monkey stuff, you just need high school education and very good knowledge of the field itself. They don't give a fuck about the degree (most companies, that is) unless you want to do R&D, in which case a master's is mandatory, sometimes a PhD.
But in stuff such as finance or consulting, your actual knowledge of the job is irrelevant unless you get into trading. You just need a big name on your resume. Universities don't teach you anything useful (apart from the basics) when it comes to anything like econ, business and finance; therefore, all the required training will be done in a few weeks to a few months once you get the job (if you do).

However, the kids who get into college and major in Jewish Diaspora studies because "the subject doesn't matter" are absolutely fucked if they don't either:
>Attend a school whose name will be enough to get them anywhere, provided their grades are good enough to show a willingness to work hard

Or

>Possess remarkable social skills and know how to network well enough to get a job right out of college in a competitive industry.

The latter almost never happens from what I've seen. Most of my coworkers in MC were history, philosophy, or english majors from a top 20 university. Knowledge does trump college pedigree in some cases, but it shouldn't warrant going for an absolutely useless field of study at a no-name university.

>>8627766
I'm currently doing an MBA at Stern and I've worked in consulting for three years prior to that. I have enough knowledge of what employers want to talk about it although I'm not an employer myself.
>>
>>8627831
how much does knowing the right people matter where youre at? i know in some places contacts are everything
>>
>>8627888
I'm not in consulting anymore.

In management consulting (which isn't the only "type" of consulting there is, but the most lucrative), networking is very important, and you need very good people skills either way. However, you don't necessarily need contacts from the industry to break in, especially if you attend an elite ("target") university, have good grades and internships, and ace the interview process.

Management consulting is arguably harder to break into than bulge bracket investment banking; if you don't go to a top university, you're going to have a lot of trouble making yourself marketable unless your profile is especially interesting.

Personally, I got in because I want to a good school but also had a decent network provided by my family; it was pretty easy for me to get into one of the top 3 management consulting firms right out of college. My coworkers had the same circumstances, or one of the two: some had a family member working (or who used to work) as a partner in the firm, others were especially bright top school grads and among the most intelligent and brilliant people I've ever met.
If I recall correctly, most of the people I worked with came from the top Ivies (HYP), Columbia, Wharton, MIT. One went to Northwestern, another to Chicago, at least one (?) to LSE. There was an outlier from Indiana U. at Bloomington but he was the only guy to not have attended a top program for his undergrad.
Of course, if you went to a top MBA, you can disregard anything I said above and get into any firm you want in corporate finance, financial markets and consulting, provided you're not trying to become a quant for example.

If you have any questions about the job or anything, feel free to ask.

>>8627935
how much do you earn in consulting? for which company did you work
>>
>>8628005
I'd rather not say for which company I worked, although it's one of the big three.

Salaries are pretty much the same as in investment banking, but the bonuses are inferior.
It also depends on your position, of course. As a first year analyst, I was in the 90k range counting bonuses. I made more money during my third year. Some third year analysts earn around 200k all in.

Then you either get an MBA and get the actual title of "management consultant", or leave and do something else (still requires an MBA in most cases). After your MBA you'll earn anywhere between 150-300k as a MC, depending on your experience. When you move up (you either move up or get laid off), you become a junior partner and earn around 450k all in. As you gain experience, you'll become a senior partner, and your compensation will range between 600k and seven figures.

If you're in for the money, you're better off doing investment banking, then getting an MBA and getting into PE at a firm like Blackstone or KKR.
The benefits of MC are generally less tiresome hours (not always true), traveling (some hate it), prestige, and the phenomenal network and versatility you'll build over the years. The bonuses, however, are less attractive than in banking.

I appreciate the not-hate tho. I haven't actually met anyone from Berkley, but like any reasonable person I don't really give two shits about the rivalry.
What are you studying?
