Yea, I'm also minoring in computer info systems. And if there is time, I'm thinking about sociology.

Last semester I took a Constitutional Law class. It was the most interesting and most informative class I've ever taken. It was also the hardest class I've ever taken too. I find CJ very interesting because it is not a concrete field. Nothing is precise like math or some sciences. Everything is very theoretical and conceptual.

The school I go to, Grand Valley, has a very good CJ program.

Yeah, GVSU is known for having a good CJ program, as is Ferris. Good luck with the CJ, I think it would be an extremely interesting program, something I seriously considered (well, actually I was thinking of Forensic Science...but yeah).

Wow, I admire you.
I couldn't stand a law class. Too many ideas. Too many words!
bla bla bla bla bla.

Just get the rules and get down to business! Quite simple. <- That'* what I like.

Don't you think you might get overloaded though?? All these "minoring" will be a lot of work.

Well, I'm getting in to Computer Forensics, so I need the CIS minor. Sociology is just a thought. I find it kind of interesting, and it would go well with a CJ major. I'll do that if I have extra time.


And yea, law is a lot to absorb. But it'* pretty valuable to know, especially when it comes down to Constitutional issues.

That'* right, Behold the Constitution!

I also think that a CJ major is going to open up a lot of options for you.

Computer Forensics? What is that? Some kind of hacker/abuser detector?

It'* a broad field. I really want to work in a lab, tearing apart computers and pulling evidence from them. In this age of technology, there could be a lot of stuff sitting on people'* hard drives that could be used for or against them. I also want to investigate computer fraud and hackers. It happens so much to corporations and such. There are many different places I could work for, both governmental and private. It would be sweet to work for the federal government doing FBI stuff, but there is also stuff on the state/local level I could do.

Yes, just like I thought.

You never know, maybe your job would be your war effort against terrorism.
