It's a good thing I'm a communist.

Sounds like I might have to revise my plans for a master's degree instead of a doctorate. That would mean I could stay here in Thibodaux since NSU has a master's program, instead of going back to Baton Rouge for a doctoral program.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Yeah PhD gets you respect, but not a heck of a lot more money unless you play your cards just right :)

Hey there,

A career in environmental biology can be a very rewarding job--it teaches you to ask questions, find out what the problem is and discovering solutions for such problems; all with finding out how living things work, interact and live with each other. It helps us understand how the world works and how humans interact with different forms. Here are some pretty great articles on what to expect in a career as a biologist:

1. http://www.aibs.org/careers/ - everything you need to know about where to start pursuing a career in this field
2. http://www.ehow.com/list_6372367_career ... ology.html - all the different types of positions that it can offer
3. http://www.onlinebiologydegree.com/ - if you're looking for an alternative method to finishing your bachelor's degree since you only have 2 years left
4. http://www.collegegrad.com/careers/proft63.shtml - an in depth look at what the job as a biological scientist

Biology is such a great field and is a really interesting and rewarding job if it is your passion, and it seems like you really enjoy it, so it might be just perfect for you. Good luck!
