Advise on school for physics

  1. Jul 21, 2010 #1

    I enjoy learning new things about the universe. I have always wanted to learn more about everything in the universe. Growing up I got into art and computers. I went to a local small university in my home town to study art. I was 3 semesters into it when I decided I wanted to study my true passion, or so I thought, physics. After 2 semesters studying physics I just stopped going to class and did not with draw. I received straight F's for every class I was taking. Before that I was making straight A's. I worked with Dell for three years. I am now 27 years old and trying to go back to school for physics. Just to get back into my local university I have to speak with a committee. What I want out of physics. I want to study cutting edge. I do not care about money. Is it to late? Did my previous actions ruin my chances of studying physics in the highest degree? Am I even going to be able to get into a good grad school with my previous background?
