    Do you guys think it's worth it to go to a college like Methodist College? Don't know if you have heard of it, but it has a degree in professional tennis management. I am still stuck in college, 21, still trying to decide what I wanna do with my life. I've always enjoyed playing tennis and am relatively competitive, probably a good 4.0.

    Here's some info on the program:

    Located in the Sandhills of North Carolina, Methodist University is one of only three colleges in the nation to offer a Professional Tennis Management Program associated with an accredited 4-year business degree. This innovative program leads to a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, Marketing, or Financial Economics with a concentration in Professional Tennis Management. Graduates in Professional Tennis Management are expected to complete the USTA Sports Science Level 1 examination, the USTA Recreational Coaches Certification, and either the United States Professional Tennis Association examination (Professional level 2 required for graduation) or the Professional Tennis Registry examination at the Professional level while attending Methodist University. For more information on PTM, contact PTM Director Pete Petersen at (800) 488-7110 ext. 7147, email: ppetersen@methodist.edu. To be included in our database, and to have PTM staff contact you, please fill out or contact form.

    PTM is the fast track into the tennis industry. The program includes:

    1. 100% Job Placement History for Interns
    2. Paid internships across the United States of America
    3. 100% Job Placement History for Graduates

    just want someone's opinion....
    thanks for your input,
    keith

    I have no practical experience but I would bet you a dollar that those kind of jobs are more about who you know than what you know...

    Sounds like something I may be interested in. I am going to be a senior in college next year and still have no clue what I want to do.
