    I think it was Yahoo which had a piece on the ten-worst Bachelor degrees. Some were obvious, some not. Chem Eng???? Maybe too many in the field. Law enforcment and criminal justice??? Maybe max out lower than others, not counting promised benefits–presuming the same actually appear.
    Strikes me that two-year degrees are not likely to be in music, art history, and so forth.
    It would be real kick to discover fewer baristas with two-year degrees than four-year degrees.
    Depressing, I suppose.
