45K a year isnt necessarily something to brag about. In no way am I putting down what you want to do (heck, my dad makes about that much). I just think that type of salary can be achieved even without a high school diploma. :thumb:
You have to look at median income dude. What is everyone in your town making. Hell it could be on of the highest incomes. You shouldn't be knocking on someone that makes that much. Hell my first year as a government fireman I made 42000, that paid for a house two cars groceries, bills ,etc. Not everyone is going to make 100k off the bat, if you do I say BS :thumbdown

If you read my post I clearly stated that I wasnt trying to put down what he wants to do. I didnt mean to offend anyone, im just basing my opinion on what my family lives off of. Now I'll tell you it all depends if you plan to raise kids and support a family with that kind of income, if not then I think 45K a year is more than suitable for one person.

Hell I have 2 kids and it worked out fine , I'm sorry to bum on you. 45 is a good income reguardless of kids or not. I think I was a little bothered by the thing you said about not having a HS diploma and being able to make that much.

Well then I stand corrected then man. Once again, I didnt mean to offend anyone. My words were strictly from expierience and based on what is going on in my life. But I shouldnt have made that assumption just because my dad is fortunate to make what he does without a diploma. :thumb:

On a lighter note, I think it's funny as hell that Redmachine is going to be an arson investigator...after the post earlier this summer that included pics of his neighboring house's bee hive and about 50 following posts suggesting he set it on fire!

Pharmacy at the University of Iowa. I've been thinking about switching majors to photography, where'd I'd be moving out to Ventura, CA at Brooks Photo of CA, or Ohio Institute of Photography in Cincinatti. Problem is the average income of a first year student out of U of I in pharmacy is $100k/year... and photography is, well, not much.

I'm an economics major at Saint Joseph's University. I am thinking about switching, maybe to art since I love art too, but SJU does not have a great art program, so we'll see what happens.

im going for colission/refinishing and assertified business management class at Wyotech...my elective course is chassis fabrication tho..i cant wait.. u build roll cages, port and flowbench cylinder heads and shit. i got a spare head layin around and buscher gave me the specs of their street/strip head. haha i cant wait. i just took the refinishing /colission part cuz i didnt know anything about it. i was already pretty good with motor work so i figured id take that so i could be well rounded. i hiighly recommend the school if anybody was thinkin about it.

Well, I'm a junior in HS right now, hoping to go to UW Milwuakee for a 1 year, then transfer to UW Madison for a DOuble major in Biochemistry, and Pre med. Finish both up and attened medial school for another 4 years. Then go into residency for another 4-6 years to becoem an Anesthesiologist.

Yeah, It's alot of school, but when you get out and make over 250,000 Starting... with upto 400,000 a year with experice I'm not going to complain. Plus, being a doctor you get to help people.
