No one will ever make me believe that the Garrett on my tv screen could ever do the job in that job description. I’m sorry. The people who do those jobs are often people who fell just short of getting into med school not because of poor grades or MCATs but because there are so few slots. Technical medical equipment reps are generally considered and compensated a step or two above pharmaceutical reps. In my experience, like many top tier pharmaceutical reps, they generally have solid science backgrounds - anatomy, chemistry, physiology, biology so that they have a grasp and a proven mastery of the level and complexity of material they will encounter in training. The training is generally challenging for the hiree and expensive for the company because they cannot consult with medical professionals in an operating room, during or before a procedure with only surface knowledge. You’re not selling tongue depressors. While some companies look for marketing degrees, MBAs or other business-related disciplines instead of the sciences, only a moron would hire a General Studies major for one of those slots. Anything can happen in life and if Garrett had a highly technical job like the one described, anything did. JMO

IMO a 4-year degree in General Studies is the degree you get when you can't or won't meet departmental demands for a given major, i.e. in Biology, Chemistry, English, History, Business, or any number of other fields. Majors require the completion of certain courses and some electives with at least a "B" grade. So I'm going to infer that he attended college for four years with something like a "C" average. I personally would be completely uninterested in having him as a consultant in any operating room where I'm having surgery. But I'm fussy like that.

Actually, a general studies degree is not a cake walk degree. 

 My kids have friends who couldn't decide what they wanted to major in so they chose a general studies degree. They got to take a broad range of classes that interested them instead of being pigeonholed into a specific major.  When my son in law was in med school, there were two med students who were general studies majors in undergrad.  

Like Lauren during Arie's season, I don't think Garrett is comfortable in front of cameras.

General Studies degrees in med school. I commend them. That’s a 90 degree learning curve for sure but, brilliant people can learn anything with the right review courses IMO.

Such interesting conversations about degrees and jobs I had to scroll back pages to figure out all that was facts!  I know more about medical device companies than I could ever type, the good the bad and the ugly, the education requirements, the personality requirements for success, etc.  It's my life basically.  Any sales rep for that company (or any medical device co) would need to be intelligent, out-going and confident, but not ego driven.  To be a successful sales rep you need to be sharp!  Like Garrett or hate him, it's tough to knock his career, IMO. Both are fortunate enough to be college educated IMO.  A General Studies degree can be where a student creates their own degree by combining various components of different majors such as business, kinesiology, and psych. for example to meet their future goals.  Most colleges have these programs now and it doesn't necessarily mean anything less than a BS or BA degree.  

.  Both are luck to be educated and appear to be extremely successful for their ages.  IMO

Well said @Minney    yes

I have read that Garrett's major was Community Health Science at Univ of Nevada which tells me he is working in his chosen field as a Consultant, Distal Extremities Surgical Technology.

JMO.

If that's true, then his B.S. is in either Kinesiology or Public Health, both of which make a heck of a lot more sense than General Studies, given his employment.

@Minney Not sure what you read but, the commentary about education has nothing to do with Blake, IMO. This is just the calm before the storm when millions of viewers who are unspoiled realize who Becca chose and what  many people believe his SM likes say about him and about Becca’s choice of him, as well as what her reaction and future decisions say about her. IMO with her choice of Garrett, she wades into the middle of the issues. People are right and people are wrong but passionate either way.

Not that it matters to me, but for the sake of sleuthing and my curiosity, what is the fact? Does Garrett have the degree in general studies or community health science? And where’s the proof? Inquiring mind wants to know.

His athletic profile on the University of Nevada website from his senior year lists his major as community health sciences. I think they would know...

@havadrpepper thanks and I found it!

Community health scienes major...

So where did that ‘his degree in general studies” come from? We spent pages of discussion on something untrue?

Did have to laugh that whoever wrote that blurb doesn't know how to spell sciences though...

Of course, proofreading is a lost art these days.

These days, the majority of med/dental schools have up to half of their class with degrees outside the science field.  They look for well rounded individuals, and a particular degree doesn't determine one's aptitude to be a good doctor/dentist.
