What can I do after obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree?

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
Hey this question might be a little old but it concerns me very much. I intend to do the Life Science program and hopefully get a BSc degree. Potentially, what could I do after that? I'm thinking besides med school. Primarily I intend to apply for the optometry program at Waterloo but I'm trying to think of backup plans in case I don't get into that. Any ideas?
And If not additional schooling, any jobs I could potentially do with the undergrad degree? Any ideas

Science is antiquated and obsolete. Try getting a bachelor's degree in alchemy instead. You'll become Harry Potter's successor.

With an undergraduate degree, unless you want to work as a lab technician you won't get a science-related job that will make you a steady income. The degree is just too theoretical in the job market. No employer has a use for someone who studied organic chemistry, molecular biology, and physiology? I mean just look at these courses in itself. It's far too academic and theoretical to have any applicable use for entry-level jobs.
