The career panel last night was fun. It was interesting for me to hear what other people are doing with their degree as well. Almost all of them are pursuing PhDs. They advised me not to wait too long before going for it if that is what I decide to do. I think I might have gotten a couple of students to consider working in government.

May - NV
June - CT & NJ
Aug - MN
Sept - ME
Oct - ME

I don't have that much faith in the rehabilitative proficiency of our correctional system.
