Hi, I have just a few basic questions. I was in the army for about 6 years then worked as a CCNA for about 6 years before being layed off, entire company was farmed out to Philippians I believe. I am a disabled vet with a wife and 2 year old. I was accepted into the VA's chapter 31 program which basically pays for my secondary education 100% plus a monthly stipend. I have bounced around a couple years and have wanted to go into physics but I read on forums that I am too old and that if my math skill set is average I will struggle to much (my business buddies think this). My math used to be sharper, but I took algebra 101, trig and brief calculus, did ok in algebra (except for logs I start to struggle some) did pretty good in trig and struggled with a 5 week business calculus class. I passed with a C but I usually get B+'s to A's in most classes. I guess I am just unsure if switching now is wise as it would be almost like starting over. Here is a link to the recommend coarse sequence. I would have to start with a lower physics class for the prereq for phys 211. http://physics.unl.edu/undergrad/Phys_Major_Sequence_12_2_22.pdf Also, is University of Nebraska a good place to take physics? I looked at a couple rankings and it is not even listed so I am guessing its just average. Here is the class load I would take if I took the professional track of physics at UNL. http://bulletin.unl.edu/undergraduate/major/Physics I am not sure what I want to do with a physics degree. But all my classes so far dance around science and I feel like I just want to learn more about the world around me, I am so tired of business classes and I do not really look forward to entering a business admin world, I just took business because it seemed the degree most take to establish a career in the quickest amount of time. I would have no issue with pursuing grad work, I have really enjoyed my basic astronomy classes and am an avid stargazer. 1. I am 1 year from getting at Agribusiness Degree at unl.edu 2. Money is not an issue, but maybe time is a big issue. 3. I do not feel "satisfied" with my current degree work. 4. I am really torn. 5. Wife is behind me either way as she is making some serious bank, but I have a sneaky suspicion she would rather see me get this business degree. 6. I really started to question my business degree path when I took the business calc class, it was a 5 week summer crash course. 48 people started, 9 passed, I was one of the 9 with a C. It was the ****ing hardest class I have ever took, probably put in 4 to 5 hours a night with 8 hour saturdays. Had an exam every monday and a cumulative final. But I passed and something inside me did not want to waste the hundreds of hours I put into learning that math. 7. I always wanted to study physics but was scared of the math, after the business calc class I feel I may be able to do it, it seems like everyone tells me it is too late. I just do not know the correct path forward. Any idea's or advice would be great.
