Re: How to become a paleontologist......

Okay guys (and gals):
I need to know all that I can about becoming a paleontologist
(every minute detail) from my sophmore year of highschool on. And before
any of you think that this is some lazy aproach to get quick answers by
me, don't. I'll be doing research myself.
Since vertebrate paleontology positions are few in number and difficult to
obtain (as well as low-paying), and it's impossible to predict future trends
along these lines visa-vi funding for the sciences in general (and sciences
dealing with evolution in particular). You will find yourself facing a lot of
these problems alone, I'm afraid. Perhaps you might consider networking with a
fellow enthusiast like Jessica, who sounds as if she is facing the same type
of challenges. DV.
