Hi everyone, So to provide some background, I'm a 20 year old student in a community college who is about to transfer to a 4 year school in the coming winter. My interest in physics is fairly recent, as I was planning on becoming an astronomer when I entered college, but took an algebra based physics course and was hooked from then on. Since then, I've taken 1 semester of calculus, but the rest of my classes have been general education requirements, so I really have only barely gotten my feet wet, and to be honest do not know what to expect. I don't have any vested interest in a specific branch of physics, but I spoke to a counselor around a year ago, and he convinced me to work towards a bachelors in general physics, and find what to specialize in along the way. After that, I decided I would hope to get into a graduate school in Germany due to it being more financially viable. I don't have many resources besides my schools counselors, and would really appreciate a second opinion. Long story short, I have these few questions: 1: Is my current plan viable, and realistic? 2: How would I be able to familiarize myself with other branches of physics? 3: Is it possible for a lower financial class individual with B+ math aptitude to make it as a physicist? Thank you to anyone who took their time to read through this, and further thanks to anyone who would respond.
