I want to help people and earn good money? watch


    Buddy, wake up out of your infantile bubble. Do you even realise that the number of jobs that crossover both those things is quite small. Get out of lala land. You either pick a degree that involves helping people and get paid crumbs or you go study something tough like engineering and make money. You can't have both. Medicine is a stretch for most people and Law is for pure scum(I can count on a single hand the number of lawyers who care for their clients over the pay packet they make annually). Please grow up

    Haha. I also want long holidays, great benefits and short workdays - and a final salary pension.

    Get a grip.

    Better pick something you're good at and/or enjoy. The money may follow.
    Choose something 'for the money' and you will hate your life - remember that, along with sleeping, that's what you spend most of your time doing.
