A law degrees got to give you a high paid job.
It's a lot less impressive when you look at the figures for expenditure incurred during your Legal Practice Course added to your student loans.

Yeah, probably :)

But living with the pressure of a massive debt during those years can't be good for your mental health.

Every student has debts and i'm the same as every one else in the fact that i;'m not looking forward to them but its life and it aint fair( i'v said that twice today).
Once we are out of debt we can look back at it and say we survived.

Sorry for massive delay in getting back to people. According to a Times article in 1997, an economics graduate could expect an average starting pay of £35k.

See: http://les1.man.ac.uk/ses/ug/careers.htm for some other facts and figures.

If the starting salary in 1997 was £35k, allowing for inflation of 3% each year until I graduate in 2006, I could be looking at a £48k salary.

Taking into account all BA or BSc degrees, on average, the highest paid is clinical dentistry. The Masters degree which, on average, results in you getting the highest paid job is economics.

Interesting!
.... if you get a job

engineers have great job opertunities and highish pay.

It depends how much emphasis you put on money. For me, financial security rather than lots of money is important.

I'm going to take a maths and economics degree and hopfully earn a lot in something (not sure what yet). I heard some of the highest paid professions are in actuarial science. Because maths is such a great transferable skill I hopefully won't end up jobless or with a job I can barely buy a house with (you know what I mean).

Yup with an engineering type degree you can basically do anything you like (Baring the obvious like medicine).

And that 35k was after 10 years, its not the starting salary, read the article

put the money you would spend on university towards a nose job and boob implants and you can make a hell of a lot more than you would with a degree in dentistry.

Failing that, becoming a plastic surgeon would earn you more than being a dentist or an engineer.

If I'm not earning double that figure by the time I'm 30 or so I'll eat my hat. OR I'll start my own business (remember I was telling you about it, send me your CV's) .
