What you need to be successful in this career
Good highschool classes are Calculus, Geology, Physics, Public Speaking, Statistics, Probability, and Trigonometry/Advanced Algebra.
As far as college, I would need a masters degree, work experience, and a graduate degree for research and facility positions.
The tuition at the University of Madison $10,728 dollars per year. If you plan on having and apartment it is and average of 22,800 dollars for four years. The average for groceries is 10,560 dollars with no one else and that's for four years. Gas money if you just going to work and school for four years is around 4,080. If you get clothing it depends on how much you get and how expensive your clothes are, up I got around 400 dollars for the four years.
The total if you stay in those ranges would be are 75,096 dollars for the whole tuition.
I would need to get a part time job because I don't have to money to pay for all the books and everything, but others many have been saving money for years. I don't have lot of money to begin with and I will need it for books, so yes I think I'll need a loan, or financial aid. This career isn't for everyone, including me. I want to do something more in life than just weather, but others love learning different things everyday
