What is the best job for someone who loves math, especially calculus?
I want to find a major that will guide me towards a job that involves a ton of math, if not all. I really love calculus and plan on majoring in math anyways. I'm just worried I won't like engineering but that seems to be all anyone ever tells me.

Actuary. I have a good friend majoring in math. He needs a BA to be able to get a job as an actuary. They calculate life insurance like Ben Stiller in "Along Came Polly" the movie. He sees if it is worth increasing the price of life insurance or not. You should probably consider it. http://www.beanactuary.org/
