Tough decisions: Students consider life after 'U'
By Michelle Lee Thompson

Get ajob or go to grad school - as far as CP&P
knows, it's a 70-30 split.
That is, about 70 percent of students who use
Career Planning & Placement services go into the
job market and about 30 percent head off for grad-
uate studies, said assistant director Jennifer
Often, students know the path they want to take
long before graduation day comes around.
"I am going to get a job," said LSA first-year
student Kanika Thomas.
"I want to be a copy writer. That's a person who
writes commercials," she said.
Thomas said she wants to be a producer some-
day, and that's not something you can go to school
for. "You definitely have to work your way up."
But for other students, the vast array of options
proves to be a bit confusing, and they can't decide
what to do.
"I really have no idea," said LSA sophomore
Kate Montgomery, who is undeclared but plans to
be an English concentrator. "Maybe a teacher."
LSA senior Quinn Dorgan said he wants to go
to medical school after he graduates.
"My father is a doctor, and it just interests me.
It's what I've always wanted to do," Dorgan said.
"I am pre-med, but if that doesn't pan out, then I
have no idea."
However, Dorgan said he is also considering
graduate school. He is concentrating in philosophy
"Between those two majors, I figure there's
something," Dorgan said.
Many students aren't sure yet of their plans for
the future, and Montgomery said the decisions
ahead will be difficult.
"I think it's hard. You definitely have to be on
the ball at this school. I mean, everyone's talking
about what they're doing," she said.
Dorgan said he has utilized campus resources,
including CP&P, to look at various medical
schools and other options.
