if you dont go to a shitbox school, aka something pretty elite, you can major in Picture Books and get IB. its a calculus that involves way more factors than your major.

Conversely, you aren't getting job with an electrical engineering degree from a shit school like Central Michigan University.

lol ok, I'll clarify:

If you go to HYP, major in whatever you want. If you go anywhere else (read: nearly everyone) major in something useful, otherwise you ain't gettin a decent jerb.

Yes you are. And if you major in humanities at HYP with bad grades, you will likely never make as much money as that central Mich grad.


You should look at HYP starting/midyear salaries. If they didn't give as much fin aid as they do, most of their students could likely never pay back their loans (if they paid through loans)

I guess I'll have to call up all the people I know who went to shit schools (CMU, WMU, SVSU, GVSU, etc.) for engineering to tell them "hey you aren't actually unemployed or working as an AT&T salesman, you found an engineering job out of school!" I don't think they will find that convincing. And they graduated Pre-ITE. Believe me, when only half of engineering grads are finding jobs these days, recruiters absolutely care about where you get your engineering degree. Advising someone that they will have a good chance at getting a job from a school without a strong engineering reputation is borderline boomer-esque advice.

This was my source and I admit my statement may be wrong.

No major can prepare you for the LSAT but some college courses including but not limited to: logic, philosophy, rhetoric, or literature may help develop a mindset that will make the LSAT material "easier" to comprehend.
