I highly suggest you stay off the law school track and instead gear your skillset towards hunting ravenous mutants, scavenging precious fuel and medicine, detecting signs of radiation poisoning, and being okay with cooking and consuming the flesh of your fellow man, as all these will all be highly sought-after skills in the anticipated post-apocalyptic deathplanet market.

But I don't think Reedo has a science/engineering degree.
No I don't, BA in Poli Sci (lol)
I am trying to research niche legal fields to see if any suit my interest, I figure that if I could find my way into a field with steady demand but lower competition...I don't fucking know haha. Hopefully 2016 looks better than 2012.
computer science - and work in tech. come out to the Bay area and there is 100% job placement for anyone in tech. You don't even have to know how to code - but with a degree in CS you can be a product/project manager, QA control (fancy customer service), shit you can even work as the receptionist for a startup and starting is 60-65K (90K starting for a PM, 100+ for an engineer)
^Sort of true except you will be competing with a sea of foreign students/professionals whom skills are much better, technically.
I guess that is where you can position your journalism degree. I agree writing as a communication is undervalued and overlooked. And there is a difference between getting your point across as simple and clearly as possible re: Teger versus romanticizing the English vocabulary re: thewho (I get it but it is still intimidating and over the top IMO). Synthese is like a good medium.
