How hard was it to get in? How was your experience? I currently study finance(1 year done) and I got accepted to the University of New Haven on scholarship. I plan on taking extra classes in math and physics, so if I decide to pursue a degree in astronomy I will have the pre reqs done. Unfortunately, the only astronomy program near me is Yale's, the hardest school to get into. I wish I could study astronomy for undergraduate, but I can't risk not having a job(and I'm still behind in math). I plan on using my finance degree to fund the education I really want.
