Alan,

It is a bit difficult to advise you further about courses and colleges without knowing the deatils of your academic life. If you want further advice, I suggest you e-mail me so we don't take up forum space with private matters.

Careers:
Most people in herpetology are in academia - that is, they teach college. There are always a few openings each year as keepers in the herpetology departments of larger zoos. There are also a goodly number of positions in government: state fish and game agencies, and especially the U.S. Biological Service.

Thanks, now I understand. Its like you have to take steps in order to get where you would like to be(the "finish line"). So, what are some classes you recommend me to register for right now in high school?

: Also, about the good Midwest herp schools mentioned to me in a previous response...what makes them to be considered a "good herp school"? Would it help me a good amount to study Biology right now outside of school? Kind of a dumb question, but would it be an extreme amount of help, because I'm willing to do it? I am currently doing cell study...

: Finally, what I want to know more than anything is, if I were to succeed in college through this, what are some career possibilities?
