I guess I was a bit vague...When I was applying to grad schools during my last year as an undergrad I remember going to a lecture by a professor from William and Mary who was recruiting for their relatively new Applied Science Phd program and he was saying how WHAT you get your Phd in isn't nearly as important as what you DO once you've gotten it. I intend to work as a physicist for the bulk of my career and was wondering if its that big a deal for hiring/employment purposes if my Phd is in Physics or Computational Sciences with a concentration in physics, especially since both my bachelors and masters would be in Applied Physics.
