Sounds tough! I prefer children and adolescents - I think that's what I want
to go into, but I'm just a kid myself really, just finishing off my
undergrad degree...got to get back to my dissertation now though!

Cool - know what I got paid for my year's work experience, where might I
add, I worked overtime and long hours and even brought work home with me,
and carried out a research project single-handedly because my supervisor
hadn't done research for about 40 years and the university insisted I did
some....nothing! Not a penny, it cost me a fortune to live away from home
with no income! But it was worth it - I have friends who are still
unemployed a year after graduation because they had no work experience.
