Any tips for a physics major?

  1. Jan 20, 2012 #1
    Ive been accepted to University of Texas at Austin as a physics major! Still waiting on a reply from MIT but im not holding my breath. I was wondering if anybody has any tips for a soon-to-be physics major, or perhaps anyone who actually attended UT Austin who could offer some tips about the school. Thanks!

    Firstly, congratulations. Secondly, do well early, and do well consistently. Don't shrug off gen-eds or introductory physics courses as you're going to want to look as good as possible to grad schools. When you get into your later years, embrace the idea of independent research. Also, try to have fun, it's good for your health.

    Good luck!
