    My academic future right now looks like hell

    I dont know why, but i'm currently just so unmotivated and lazy in college right now. Im going to be a junior, and I did really good during my freshmen year, pretty much getting all As or A-'s. And then, in my sophomore year everything went to ****. I dont have any explanation whatsoever...

    Schools Bad grades in college (yes happens to everyone but i got hit BAD)

    I'm sure there is some underlying reason, but i cnanot pinpoint it exactly. The best way i can say it is that i had no specific goals, which lead to lack of inspiration/motivation, which lead to laziness/slacker but still that doesn't sound good at all. It makes me sound like an as$shole...

    Schools Bad grades in college (yes happens to everyone but i got hit BAD)

    first of all, i am an aspiring EE student. At my school (as with many), students must actually apply to the engineering school usually at the end of their sophomore year. There are exceptions, such as early admission or direct freshmen admission, but most just do sophomore year. Ok so i kind...

    Programs EE/physics double major

    well the main thing is for ee I want to concentrate in wireless communications which involves alot of electromagnetics. And the main reason why I want to double up in physics is because it gives me the chance to go more in depth into what I want to do with EE. So in the end, the physics major...

    Programs EE/physics double major

    you wont be homeless, i was just exaggerating. If you major in physics, aside from becoming a high school teacher, it will be alot harder to find a better job. But like everyone else says, its alot easier to find a job as an actual physicist with a masters or phd

    Where to start, i know, its allready been said, but this is different

    The mathematics for qm can be extremely rigorous; for example going into quantum field theory and relativistic qm the math may be more rigorous than phd level mathematics. However, if you want specifics, for introductory quantum mechanics you are going to need experience in particularly these...

    Programs EE/physics double major

    Ok first of all Im going to say that I am not doing EE because im afraid that ill be homeless if i just do physics. I am genuinely interested in both. At first I didnt know what I was going to do, but after taking physics 2 (basic EM), i knew I really wanted to go further into electronics...

    Programs PhD Prof paid less than grade 11

    well, sadly, cleaning sutff up is more useful in society than knowing about bosons and the strong nuclear force.

    Programs Math major and engineering major

    Hello I'm a freshmen in college and I am planning on doing a double major for a BS in math and chem e or ee. Does anyone have experiences with this? what should i expect? thanks

    Calculus based physics differences algebra based physics

    algebra based physics is what pre med students take calc based physics is what science/engineering majors take. simple as that.

    Programs Master's degree in engineering: is it worth it?

    what kind of jobs would be the more interesting jobs? Like, for cheme or ee, what would be some of the jobs exclusive to those with a masters? thanks

    Programs Master's degree in engineering: is it worth it?

    will a master's degree in any engineering field really give you a significant advantasge in the job market? does it vary for different disciplines of engineering? thanks

    Best ways to study math and science?

    is the best way to study math and science really just to do tons of practice problems? BEcause ive always been told by my teachers, especially when preparing for standardized tests to do as many problems as possible. Is this really the most effective way to become "good" at math and science?

    Studying Good textbooks for math and science?

    so, list some good textbooks for undergraduate math and science. of course early transcendentals by james steward will probably be on everyone's list for math, but let's try to get some new names. i would say physics for scientists and engineers by serway and beichner is extremely well...

    Warming up right before a test?

    well, it is the night before, but i feel so prepared for some reason. Ive been studying regularly for the past week, which works way better than cramming the night before. i dunno, i feel like i just get it. It clicks with me, but im nervous also. this midterm is 40 percent of my final...

    Warming up right before a test?

    so, how analogous do u think a person about to take a test and an athlete about to compete is? Do you guys think warming up right before a test, by doing practice problems and such, can have a dramatic effect like that of an athlete stretching before a competition?

    Programs Double major in chemE and materials science?

    well, like i said, i just noticed, so im not jumping into this idea yet. BUt, i am still wondering if the extra work will be rewarded in the end? i just have a hunch that it probably wont, but what do you guys think? will it make job hunting easier?

    Programs Double major in chemE and materials science?

    So i was on my school's website and i noticed that the general education requirements for chemE and materials science is EXACTLY the same. I also think i can be finished with all of the general ed requirements at the end of this year, since i got a head start with AP classes last year. If i...

    Have you guys ever encountered anything like this?

    actually, i honestly dont care that much whether it gets changed or not. If it does, then great. If not, o well, the lowest score out of 3 gets dropped anyways, and it would inspire me to study harder for the next 2 midterms. I also have a problems with term "midterm" I dont see how you can be...

    Have you guys ever encountered anything like this?

    well 3 midterms, 1 final, some other stuff goes into the final grade. I think 15% off a midterm would make a heck of a difference.

    Have you guys ever encountered anything like this?

    SO, i just had my physics midterm. I knew how to do everything. Except these 3 problems cause me so much headache. I was so sure i was doing everything cxorrectly, but the numbers never came out that matched the choices. those 3 problems were worth 5 points each, i ended up getting them...
