I'm currently in my first semester in law school, but I’ve decided I don’t want to be a attorney. So I’m going to drop out now before it’s too late and I’m $150k in debt.

Since middle school, I’ve had a strong interest in computers. I really enjoy fixing software problems and finding ways to use computers to make life easier. I'm the go-to IT guy for family, friends, and my dad's non-profit company. I read books about cloud computing and computer security for fun. I figure if I enjoy this type of thing, pursuing it as a career seems to make sense.

I also have a strong interest in productivity. I know this is kind of weird, but I enjoy revamping things to make them work more efficiently. I like working directly with people, and I'm a strong writer.

I graduated from college a couple years ago with a B.A in History and Political Science and a 3.8 GPA.

I've never enjoyed math or programming. So I don't want to go the programmer route. I prefer the “soft” side of tech, the “end-user” side, if that makes any sense.

So, my questions are:

1. What career paths should I look into?
2. What kind of education should I look into?

Options I’m aware of: (1) get certifications (2) take classes at a community college (3) MBA with concentration in Information Systems. Are there other options I’m leaving out?
