I have my BS in Animal Science. Biggest waste of 4 years and money. You can't really do anything with an Animal Science degree unless you want to go on to Veterinary school (I did at one point but then had my daughter and my plans changed). I am now a RVT (registered veterinary technician) and my job in particular is as a surgical tech at a large vet hospital. I could have got the job I have now with waaaaay less time in school, but oh well! One day I would like to go back to school for nursing so I can do what I do now but hopefully get paid better.

DF has an associates degree. He works as a Network Engineer for a wireless internet company. They do a lot of stuff in with oil and gas companies and he gets paid very well for what he does. Basically, he has less student loan debt than me and makes 3X what I do.
