For all you people who think a classic's major is worthless, read the following

"We can't overestimate the value of a Classics major. Check this out: according to Association of American Medical Colleges, students who major or double-major in Classics have a better success rate getting into medical school than do students who concentrate solely in biology, microbiology, and other branches of science. Crazy, huh? Furthermore, according to Harvard Magazine, Classics majors (and math majors) have the highest success rates of any majors in law school. Believe it or not: political science, economics, and pre-law majors lag fairly far behind. Even furthermore, Classics majors consistently have some of the highest scores on GREs of all undergraduates."

Yeah, but the major is USELESS and POINTLESS! SO U CAN SPEAK TO THE POPE! WHAT ELSE? WHO CAN YOU SPEAK TO? The point of language is communication!! Unless you're going on to grad or prof school, it's a pointless major. The rates are so high because only someone with no life would major in Classics. There!! I've said what everyone else is thinking!!

Well, wouldn't major in Classics, and not go to grad school.
