most of the CJ majors i met in skool were knuckledraggers...the only real interaction I had with them was at a middler year writing course, where most of them couldn't formulate a sentence appropriately...ie at 20years old you should know a thing.

Biomedical, based on increased likelihood that the degree will be of use in a paying job.
I agree, I was once in your position. I couldn't decide if I wanted to be an engineering major or a history major.

I decided to go for engineering because I asked myself "what the hell am I gonna do with a history major?". I do not regret my decision at all.

Yeah thats what Im leaning towards. Medicine is the only thing I'm interested in that I could make any money with. But it also requires the most school. I'd love to be a surgeon or ER doctor maybe.
you might be the first person who's ever said "I wanna be an ER doctor" :rofl:

Im interested in sciences mainly biology, anatomy, and psychology.
Combine all of these and pursue neuroscience. I was in a similar position as you when I entered college, not sure what I wanted to do, but had a vague sense of interest in these fields, plus philosophy. I eventually stumbled upon neuroscience and fell absolutely in love with the field-- here I am a half-dozen years later earning my PhD. There is so much growth in this field you are almost certain to find a career path.

Nursing, and here's why.
First off, you'll be surround by chicks in almost all your classes. Some of them will be quite hot. They're also not real smart, so you'll always appear to be a good student and will make better grades than if you had to compete with men, due to curving.
You'll make a decent living right out of college, with plenty of opportunity for upward mobility. Most hospitals will pay for you to become a nurse practitioner or physicians assistant or whatever else.
Also, you have instant job security. There are starting to be a lot of old people in case you hadn't noticed. Even if you hate one hospital, you just move on to the next... get hired instantly.
Finally, all those nurses you went to school with... some will still be hot while you're working alongside them in your career. Sure, most of them are banging the married doctors, but that just proves they're easy.
...downside? The job can be sh*tty (literally) and you work long hours, but you also get many days off in a row. You have to work in scrubs...and when people ask if you're doctor, you'll have to look at the floor in shame and say "no, just a nurse" but I think it's a pretty good title personally. And remember what college was like?

Ok so I really only have a broad idea of what I want to do after college, Im interested in sciences mainly biology, anatomy, and psychology. But I'm also interested in law, so I really have no idea..
Biomedical is the only major worth anything out of those choices. Criminal Justice is worthless. You can get a job as a cop or anything along those lines as long if you have any degree. Science has a lot of flexibility, along with showing to potential employers that you are less retarded than most college graduates.

I was a chem major and still regret no persuing the bio portion since I went to school with quite a few bio chem majors. I have always had an interest in the medical field. NPs and PAs are both pretty good gigs. You can even do pretty well as a nurse. If you don't mind working nights, you pick up a nice differential, usually 10-15%. There are other options you may not think of either, like traveling nurses. You can get paid to travel all over the U.S. and decide where you like it best. Bring your bike with you.

There are a lot of hot nurses.

Become a brewmaster.

Or go to a lot of school and become an orthopod or plastic surgeon.

Or work on your three-sums.

This is actually amazingly good advice. Anything in medical is probably a smart move.

Wow. I really didn't expect to get any useful advice out of this,:shocked: I really just posted this for fun.

Seriously Burly, that was good advice. Although I'm not sure being a nurse would be right for me, you're right about how theres going to be a ****load of old people soon with the baby boomers and all. So that pretty much means the need for doctors and surgeons is going to explode in the near future. Which is perfect for me. :weee:

Also, as a doctor or surgeon, I will have first dibs on the hot nurses! :weee::weee:

Set you sights high, but have a backup plan. Medical is smart, but most aren't cut out to be MDs

I have no idea where I am
If you want to make a ridiculous amount of money go to Med School and specialize in plastic surgery. By the time you get done with residency there will be a huge demand for earlobe reconstruction. All the hipsters with giant plugs are going to be wishing they didn't have ears that looked like a geriatric porn stars nether region.
