Your life is what you make of it! Speech language pathology is a great field. The SLP's life varies depending on the setting. The patients they see depends on where they work and the neighborhood they are in. It is a fulfilling career and never gets boring. What area of expertise are you looking into? School? Jail? Cancer center? Parkinson's Center? hospital?

Its a good life. You will always be able to find a job any where. You can work in schools, hospitals, the government, even become a part of the US Health Corp, it's an uniformed branch of the military and be able to retire in 20 years just as if you were in the military. I would highly recommend the field.
