Where the jobs are in the middle of 2010

Some of the latest reports indicate that heath care fields continue to be the best fields in which to find a job.  Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists continue to lead the way with the most demand.  But be careful.  I have it from a reliable source that in order to be a physical therapst you may have to dissect a cadaver.   Nurses are still in demand also.  Demand for sales jobs are up.  My advice is that you get into sales only if yo are really good at convincing people to see things your way.

If you can get them accept you then you can probably afford it. Many top tier universities have so much money to give to promising students that they can make it financially possible for anyone to attend….If they want you. Never sell yourself short. Money is not your biggest obstacle to college admission. Grades, tough courses, test scores, extracurricular activities, and special characteristics are the places to put your energy.
