I don't think it's guaranteed in anything anymore.

When you transfer to a 4 year school look at Pace and John Jay if you plan on staying in NY. They have good connections as far as getting internships and such in the field. Make sure it's what you want to do before you transfer though. If you plan on doing something more "office-oriented" like paralegal or probation/parole then look all around for schools.

To be honest just watch some criminal justice type TV shows and you'll find an interest somewhere.

Health Science

Worst class would probably have to be Ethics in Healthcare. The class itself wasn't that hard but the sheer lack of anything remotely exciting made it that much harder. What a lame class.

Understood. I got rejected at John Jay, I have a few friends that go there, they say it's a good school. I'm thinking more office related jobs, being a cop is so consistent for people these days. Anyone can be one, it's a average job.

State cop my man. Especially in NJ (it's tough to get in) you get over 100k a year. Know someone who made 120k last year as an NJ trooper. Check out what it is for NY because idk.

Plus with all the advancement positions in police work it might not end there. Detective work, SWAT team, k-9 unit and such. One of my professors is a Philly cop, SWAT team member, and a UFC referee for pay-per-view events on the side. Dude is badass.

Get an internship at a prosecutor's office (they'll take everybody) and see how you like the office side of the major.



EDIT: http://www.nytrooper.com/salary_benefits.cfm


check what you'd be making after 5 years. look at what you make just in the ACADEMY. then 66 grand you're 1st year.


Like I said, look all over.

it's much the same in graduate school, right?

i was ok with writing the papers. our projects weren't very good, which i'm sure made the papers more difficult than necessary

Thanks, your really helping me a lot. I'm a freshmen in college, taking on a Criminal Justice degree was just off of trying to do what's right for the community and for everyone around me. This all sounds really good, the salary these guys are making are really good. And damn, your professor is pretty badass. He's probably rich as shit.

Is what part the same? If you mean the use of SPSS, then yes. If you mean something else, you'll have to specify.
