I will be a Junior this Fall at a large and well-known public university. I am working towards a double major of physics and astronomy. I was told by a professor (at a different university) whom I had befriended that due to my interests in astronomy I should expect a certain attitude from other physics majors as I get further in school. I accepted his comment because it was based on his honest personal observation. Fast forward about 6 months from the day he told me that to yesterday (6/16/2014) where I encountered, what I feel was, the first display of this attitude from other physics majors and a professor. I was meeting a new professor of my future classes and and two of his research students in a lab. These people know nothing about me, only my name and that I am majoring in physics. During conversation I mentioned that I was declaring my 2nd major soon (astronomy), I was given this "ut oh, one of those guys :/" kind of looks from both students. A few minutes later, the professor and I walked to his office to discuss scheduling and classes. After some great discussion about my schedule the professor says, "Those astronomy classes are easy.". After a pause due to confusion of the intent and value of his comment I asked him, "What do you mean by that?" and he replied, "Typically students that double major in physics and astronomy don't do so well in physics and that brings their GPA down.". All of my excitement was instantly crushed and I simply replied that that was very interesting. Are astrophysicists really treated like this by other physicists or is this just a college thing? Any insight or comments on this will be appreciated. I feel like the professors intent was to belittle me and his response was nearly irrelevant to the comment I questioned. If this disrespect is real and common among physics majors, that is a very sad insight into intelligence and humanity.
