    -i broadcast big ten sports on the radio (football, basketball, baseball, softball, lacrosse, play by play, color analysis, fcc radio engineering, sideline reporting, et al)
    -Director of Speakers for our programming board -- I choose who comes to speak on campus and when, then I write contract/honorarium proposals and coordinate with agents and managers to make it happen
    -created and designed several commercial websites
    -during the schoolyear i work for our drunk taxi service for students
    -umpiring little league and jr high baseball

    Don't go into law unless you do well enough on the LSATs to get into a top school. And also that you're sure you can graduate near the top of your class. Otherwise it's unemployment.

    Unless you qualify for going into patent law and I'm not sure you do with just CIS.

    you could do event planning...or perhaps look into being some kind of radio personality. sounds like you'd need to be doing something fun, yet worthwhile, which involves interacting with people and instigating change.

    Land Man, you can go anywhere where oil/resources are, plus if you're good you can retire in 7 to 10 years.

    I'll do well on the LSATs, but I probably would not graduate near the top of my law school class :o

    you go to Northwestern don't you? :o

    if you really like math, have you thought about a career as an Actuary? It's a bitch with the exams and such, but if you're good and get a position with a very good company.... it could be a enjoyable career
