I dunno why people say criminal justice is such a dead field. All the teachers I've talked to at my schools here in Maryland said its a pretty easy market to get into at the state-local level. Federal government is harder to get into hence my 4-year degree. Aside from that though, I've always been told its a good field to get into. Maybe its different for other states but I will have to talk to my adviser about it some more. I've always wanted to do something in criminal justice ever since I was a kid. I may be really interested in Biology but I'd probably always be more interested in Criminal Justice. If you love what you do and get paid for it, how can you lose?
