Anyways, I need to know a couple things.

1. How many years of college/university would I need?
2. What college do you think would be the best?
3.What courses would I need to take? (Besides psychology. LOL I've heard I'd need to take Biology and study more Algebra. IDK)
4.How much is the average salary?
5. Do you think it's a good profession? Or do you think it's too stressful and depressing? By depressing, I mean hearing sad stories and dealing w/ people that are possibly suicidal.

I guess that's it. I just wanted to hear some insight. Thanks.
