    Dani and I want to go to Uni, and we want to enjoy it while we are there. What's is everyone's problem with this. I could argue till I'm blue in the face why media is NOT 'mickey mouse'.

    Ok well i'll go off and degrade my self while developing drugs to make you all healthy after getting my first in chem from durham, and you can be more useful than that with a newspaper.

    You are so arrogant. You deserve to not do well with that attitude. You havn't even finished your a levels and youre talking about just strolling to Durham and casually obtaining a first in chemistry. Get real!!!

    That is why I said working behind the tills. All the graduates probably have management jobs, also McDonalds is one of the largest companies in the country.
    That has less to do with the nature of degrees and more to do with the shortage of jobs for graduates. That is why employers have to distiguish. It's a comfort that Maths is well respected by the employers of "graduate-type" jobs.

    Ok Ok I have to say Cobra has got one thing right though, maybe a media studies degree or equivalent isn't useful for getting a job, but if your taught to pick apart the media doesn't it make you able to pick through the crap the newspapers write and actually get to the bottom of what's really going on?
    Journalists know exactly whats going on in the country, all the scandals, the finance, the war...we only see their gatekeeping of it. Surely that could help you become a more worldly person.
    And one of the reasons I want to do a Journalism degree is I want to live in London as soon as possible because you can get used to it, the atmosphere, the people, being right in the middle of it and experiencing it all first hand. If I weren't going to University I wouldn't be able to afford it in the first place and it's giving me a stepping stone as well as helping to give me more contacts, meet important people in the field and learn to adapt to the rules of journalism for myself.
    Surely that's not three years wasted?

    Be careful. Everyone thinks 'maths is the gateway to success' and everyone will have a maths degree. Then youll find it hard. The same thing is happening with law degrees.

    I'm convinced anyway. To be honest before I came on this site I used to think Media studies was a bit micky mouse but it seems there are so many clever people here studying it. You go and study Media Studies do well, get a good job working in McDonalds*

    Respect to you developing drugs cobra. Equal, (if not more as she has to deal with people criticising her degree) respect to Dani and her newspaper.

    I could not develop drugs which is why i'm not doing Chemistry. I doubt you could do write a newspaper article as well as Dani. People have different talents - STOP criticising other people's because they are different from yours!

    I'm not trying to judge other people level of talent, merely the usefulness of it.

    And i agree with you too - media is what i'm best at though. I would love to be a nurse, or doctor, but i'd be crap! I faint practically every time i got into a hospital - i can't help it and i really do respect people in the medical profession (including the development of drugs)

    Maths has got to be one of the easiest subjects. Easier than media and business studies at any rate!
