What would you recommend?
I am the parent of a high school junior who is a cadet/volunteer at our local fire department. He is getting ready to apply to colleges in the fall and is seriously considering getting a 4 year degree in fire science or related major. He has found programs at Eastern Kentucky University, Oklahoma State, John Jay College (CUNY), CSULA, and University of Idaho. I have seen some posts that have suggested military enlistment but with an older brother who is a Marine midshipman he understands better than most the true purpose of the military and wouldn't use it in that way. If he were your son and you couldn't convince him to pick another profession now that he has been exposed to yours what would you advise? Study fire science? other major? P.S. Thanks guys he wanted to be a doctor but that is done now ;).
