But if you take something totally useless like gender studies it won't help at all

@Physics-Man Good stuff man.

That’s awesome! All the best! I had a strong interest in law and was going to apply for law school, but things changed.
@SaoirseS I certainly don't want to sound like I am poo-pooing you, but it's probably for the best that life led you down a different path. I can safely say that I wouldn't ever recommend law school to anyone. The education isn't great, the people are abrasive, it costs a shitload of money, the early career prospects suck and most lawyers burn out in roughly 10 years. The only reason I'm doing what I am is because of the way it interfaces with my existing career and most, if not all of my classmates are in a similar situation. I know I will have work and a job when I'm done… I don't want to be an attorney though... I am doing this because I love studying the law and I will be able to save on legal fees in the future. I can't recommend that anyone follow my path though
Yes. I know a lawyer who knows nothing. No sense. No hobbies. Lawyers suck. But they're just the mediators of a legal system that sucks.
@IcedLemonade sounds about right... Most lawyers really do suck; they're vapid, empty people who succeed because of their social connections. it is such a shame too, because the competitive nature of the field SHOULD logically mean that lawyers would be some of the sharpest people you ever meet. Instead you just get these super privileged rich people who are totally detached from reality and usually have a chip on their shoulders from not being one of the cool kids in high school. In a legal system that could use common sense and empathy, the kind of person who succeeds in the field is anything but, and it's heartbreaking. It's amazing how much of a "type" every career field has.
@FilmGuy93. It has worked out for me. I've had a passion for law for a long time, and fully intended to go to law school after finishing my BBA. By the start of my senior year though, I started burning out on school. I wanted to get out of school and go to work, and the thought of graduating then going on to yet another school no longer had any appeal. I did it to myself really, since I have a habit of biting off more than I could chew but somehow managing to get it all done and done well, but at quite a cost to my wellbeing. I finished the last few months of my undergrad studies online at home due to the pandemic, when my dad approached me to take over the family funeral home businesses if I was interested. At first I wasn't, having spent a lifetime growing up around the death care industry and swearing to myself I would never be part of it once I left home. The business has been in the family since 1908 (that we know of for certain), started by my great great grandfather. I was my dad's last shot at keeping it in the family for a fifth generation, so I reluctantly agreed to give it a try. I was on training wheels for about a year, but it's all in my hands now. And I honestly can't see myself doing anything else now.
@SaoirseS Could you accept my follow request?
@IcedLemonade I did.
@SaoirseS That's fantastic! I'm glad that you've found what makes you happy
@normalice What type of signal processing? Have you ever worked with passive/active sonar arrays?
No, some radar and GPS. But mostly imaging signals. There is a ton of overlap between pretty much any two types of signals, though, so it's not as distinct as it may sound.
@normalice. I know enough to know I don't know enough. Really interesting stuff. I have been reading about sound propagation through salt water, convergence zones, Doppler shift, bottom bounce, etc. Complicated to say the least.
It is but computers do pretty much all the complicated work for us. And not that I don't enjoy forays into the nonpolitical realms but one of the things that irritates me most about my field is that the bulk of the best discoveries and theories were done in the 70s. Everything we do today is just some rehashed version of that with a faster computer. What's so special/political about the 70s you may ask? Why, it was the final decade that Roosevelt's New Deal provided ample funding for education before republicans under Reagan set out on the long con of taking it all back, a dollar at a time, for themselves.
