    Dentist or bust!

    Seriously though, I'd have to say a Geoscientist working in the oil industry or something. I'd have to put my geology degree to work somehow.

    Chiropractor. I would go Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minneapolis for 5 years, and then open up my own practice outside of Chicago, making $90K a year.

    ..but it looks like I'm gonna be a dentist :)

    Following one of my other passions, a professional dancer...which isn't all that stable of a profession so I'm glad I'm going to be a dentist. LOL I'm going to do whatever it takes to be a dentist 'cause I earnestly don't have much interest in other jobs.
