1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    It wasn't an entirely serious or considered suggestion, but why is this so ridiculous?

    Pharmacy school isn't ridiculous; in fact, my wife has gone back to school for a Pharm.D. The potential money is decent, the field is growing, and the competition is relatively small because you used to be able to become a pharmacist with a bachelor's and you now need a Pharm.D. That's also a downside, because it takes longer. However, if you have other skills/degrees, you'll have many opportunities beyond simply being a staff pharmacist at your local Rexall.

    So, it all comes back to whether the field interests you.

    I would think an MBA path would make some sense. Sales is a useful thing to be "good at" in a wide variety of professions - there are a metric ton of professions that can be analogized to sales. I can tell you for a certainty that skills related to sales are essential to litigation, for example.
    I work as a salesman currently, how does that help me if I have a political science degree. Just curious, cuz I'm REALLY good at it. I guess if I go to law school, that'll be good. sorry for hijack, lmao I think you should do economics, magician. I actually use to major in it, as it was my passion. However, I dropped out of the school I went to (GMU) because I realized I didn't like the research aspect of economics. I think its a good route to take, though.
