Hello. This is a long post, so some of you may find it a bit boring, and you probably won't want to read all of it. I've read some of the posts related to my questions, but my situation is a bit funkier so I decided to make my own post. Thanks for reading. Questions start with bold numbers. Currently I'm a second year science major doing physics and math courses. In my very first year of university, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, so I tried arts, but I didn't like my courses very much, so I didn't bother going. I didn't end up writing any of the finals, so I failed pretty hard (23.6% average). I went to a community college after that, as a science major, and got back into university. Right now I'm taking 3 physics and 2 math courses, and I'm considering transferring to engineering. I have about a 95% average in those courses, but my cumulative GPA is much, much lower. 1. If there's hope of me getting into teaching at the post secondary level, I'd like to do graduate level physics. I'm always wondering how things work, and it's fun to figure it out and explain it to other people. I feel that I am happiest when I'm teaching. However, I don't know if a physics graduate school will let me in with a failed year. A lot of people I've talked to seem to think I'm doomed. If I am, then I might just do engineering. I would learn a lot about how things work, and I think it could be fun too. 2. I've read a lot about how difficult graduate level physics is. From what I've read, effort is the main determinant of success. This is a big problem for me because I have a very hard time sitting down and focusing on a single question for a long time. At the college, the psychiatrist diagnosed me with Aspergers. I'm worried that I may simply not be cut out for academia, and maybe I should just stick with a Bachelors degree in something more practical. I have the option of taking stimulants to help me focus, but I'm not sure if that would be enough. If I could focus, then I wouldn't mind the large time investment towards my courses. One of my professors said that in undergrad, third and fourth year involve more work than second, but you aren't expected to learn material much faster than at second year. Once you're over the second year "hump", then it's not too hard. Because of this I think can do an undergraduate degree. If I'm wrong though, I wouldn't mind some input. Thanks again for reading. I appreciate any advice.
