Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science

This degree can lead to working with professional and collegiate athletes who are injured or who are simply trying to redesign their golf swing. You might use a computer to analyze the ankle motion of a long-distance runner, or help an injured child take her first, teetering steps on her new legs.

If you work hard and get noticed, you might just end up with a courtside, ringside, or fifty-yard line office.

So when the season is two months away, you line up the offers from eight pro teams across the floor, and pace back and forth. The phone rings, and when you turn to answer it, you slip on one of the sheets of paper and twist your ankle. You do get to the phone, though. It's the manager of the Colts. He wants to meet in five hours. Now what are you going to do?

Just walk it off, Champ. Walk it off.
