Default No Aviation Degree !!

I can tell you first hand about the twisted look that the interviewer gets when they ask about your aviation degree. It is totally useless. Even the airlines don't have much use for it. It makes you seem limited in your interests and abilities. Get a degree in anything else. The best majors are: accounting, business administration, engineering, marketing, and then the sciences.

Its true that a degree is just a degree, but aviation is down there with art and leisure services. It's not considered a strong and useful education and it really isn't. Universities have to work to fill useless classes with fluff in order to bulk up a B.S. degree in aviation. Get a diversified education. Reach beyond your immediate desires and you will not be sorry for it when you are furloughed for the third time and have something real to fall back on. I speak from experience.
