I think you have some good advice from mistertoad, but I must say that your mother may be quite correct also. You should remember always that the real university is the field - nature is the best lecturer than you can have - just be prepared for the lessons. One of the first lessons is that field work will keep you very poor and rare are those who will fund it without strings attached. If you become a field worker first you will likely cripple your education, because you will know too much for your own good too soon. You will instantly recognize the failings of formal education, the unworthiness of those in charge of it and ultimately the true wisdom that within you is all you really need to know. Yet you may still know these things and more in time. The really smart zoologists play dumb, go to university, play the game, get a piece of paper, then run like hell to nature and find yourself before it is too late. If you just want money, stay away from science lad, and go into real estate or the stock market...but you probably won't do that....

Good Luck to You

Richard Wells
