I'd do something to make a difference in the world (honestly). I'd join the Peace Corps, Teach for America, Americorps, ect.

Or else, I'd go to graduate school for something else (film or I'd get my MBA).

Temple Medical school has a program for career changers (or those who graduated with a useless poli sci major and now don't want law school), with something like a 0.5% acceptance rate, where, in one year, you take every pre-med class and do MCAT prep. If you complete it with a 3.0 and get a 30 on your MCAT, you are accepted to Temple Med and automatically enroll your second year. Remarkably, they do such a good job screening that it is very rare for anyone not to be accepted to temple med. Fuck law school, sign me up.

Equatorial Guinea has, arguably, the single worst prison in the Western Hemisphere so you were wise to choose law over smuggling even though the pay & hours are less desirable.

I'd probably go to graduate school for an MBA or get my PHd so that I can teach at a college level comfortably. I love school. Or I'd dive back into finding a job in marketing/advertising/journalism...something in my undergraduate degree department.

EDIT: No, that's entirely true. I'd probably go back to school and get a degree in physics.

In the 4 years since college I: moved from Southern California and did consulting in Chicago, research in South Africa, tried to be a writer in New York and am currently wrapping up a term as an AmeriCorps in New Orleans... My resume looks pretty schizo, but I wouldn't change it for anything.
