I have applied to a physics program (bachelor) at a university where i live. The program is "open", there are no grade limitations (it's the same most places in Norway - studying science is not that popular). But as far as I've understood, the university is good. They have exchange programs with the univ. of Heidelberg and Washington. But... I don't want to become a "physicist". The university has a master's program in Micro Electronics (a physics bachelor leads to this). That is something I'm interested in - something practically, where I can develop stuff. What I mean is that I don't want to become a pure theoretical physicist... Should I have a goal to get an excellent bachelor and apply to some the top schools in the US, as opposed to stay here? Can I have a "succesfull" life nontheless? I plan to do more than my best when the studies begin, so should I give it a try? Can I get somewhat of an engineer's degree (in electronics and such) with a physics bachelor? I'm not the person who easily "aces" everything i math and physics. But I can get decent grades when working very hard... (decent grades that is). Do I have a chance of surviving such an education? I don't have a clear picture of what I see myself doing after I'm finished in school. I want to participate in developing things. Electronic chips maybe, and having the ability to excel in ranks (corporate wise)... I'm sorry if this post is a little unstructured. But I'm so uncertain, I almost doubt every decision I make. What bugs me is that I'm so uncertain, anything in technology is interesting (not chemistry, biology and medicine). But the number of fields are immense! Thanks!
