Hey all, I am starting to think about colleges, it's a bit early for me (I'm entering 11th grade) but knowing which colleges I am seriously interested in would be a big help for a lot of reasons. I am absolutely sure I want to pursue a path in theoretical physics (not sure if thats the right word, but not applied physics), and I am 90% sure I want to do either astrophysics or astronomy. Now while I had always assumed I would go to college for physics and would later pursue a path in astro-something, when looking through colleges, I've noticed that a few of them offer Astrophysics as separate courses for undergrads (instead of being a later choice). My question is: if I am going to study Astrophysics, is it a considerable advantage to start off along that path as an undergrad? And as a more broad question, what are the differences between a working Astrophysicist and a working Astronomer in contemporary science? Thank you, and I applaud you if you read all of that.
