    IF a graduate starting salary is only 12,000 pounds a year, then why bother going to uni?
    These days with so many graduates, in terms of your employability if you get a 2.2 from a lower end university in most cases you may as well not have bothered.

    Unless you go into something like teaching.

    You could let us know how it goes. I think I prefer more academic experience in law myself
    Well I have already got a A Level Law and I didn't really want to go back to College. I know the basics and will continue to read up on it. :rolleyes:
    I thought I should get some experience in a City law firm as it will increase my chances later after I have done the degree

    Well I've been told I should take some work experience during my retakes but I don't live in a big town so I have fewer places to go to than London for example. Will give it a look.
    Shall I figure out where you live by the co-ordinates you hvae supplied? I bet that would freak you out!

    Beat me too it

    If you look on a lot of graduate schemes they say that they require a 2:1 for most degrees and then ask for a 2:2 in an Engineering subject.

    And can people stop saying if you get less than a 2:1 you've basically just wasted 4 years of your life and should of just become a bin man when you were 16 its just such bull***t!

    Well if your game's not engineering then you have, haven't you?

    When I think back to the people I knew who got desmond's at uni I always think, 'why did you bother coming here? you could have at least tried!'

    the desmond is the degree of the bright dosser, but this is probably only true at red bricks.

    Its not just about the mark you come away with its about the experiences you had there, like would you of moved out at 18 if you'd of not gone to uni, learnt how to live on your own. I doubt i'd even be able to iron if it'd not been for uni

    sadly it didn't teach you the difference between "have" and "of".

    I wish i took my education seriously. I just wanted OUT, had enough. So after college i got myself a 12k job, did some partying, traveled etc, enjoyed it.
    Now i'm starting to think about my future. So at the moment i'm considering joining the RAF or going to Uni to get myself a degree and hopefully get myself a well paid job. If both of those don't go through i'll play poker online. (I know someone who earns $100,000 a year from playing poker online)
