Hello, I know that this question has been posted by others before, and I've read the threads, but I want to hear it again. I'm about to graduate with a BA in Geography. It has taken 8 years to get it, because I am not made of money and I've spent more time at work than I have at school. In fact, that is why I did not pursue the sciences from the beginning - I thought it would take up too much of my time and I did not want to receive poor grades (stupid, stupid me). Of course, now older and wiser, I know that science, specifically physics, is what I want to do (the most frustrating part is that I have known this ever since I was about 13). I keep trying to push the idea out of my mind, but its not going away, so here I am. I'm getting older (sort of... for a student, anyway) and I have to decide: is my next step going to be to settle on a master's degree that relates to my degree, or do I pursue physics? I know that with my background, I would need to start from the very beginning... probably needing to do upgrade courses even just to get into the first year maths/science. I love school, spending decades in school is not an issue for me - but money, unfortunately, is. So, go ahead, share your opinion if you have one. I think I'm crazy. But the idea isn't going away. So what to do?
