Hey everyone - I have a BS in Finance and have been working in Private Equity for a couple years now. This past year I have been having the 25 year old, "wtf do I want to do with my life" quarter-life crisis. I have been highly interested in Physics my entire life. Always fascinated by the world, stars, you name it. I am born and raised just across the water from NYC. With my father in the business, I guess you can say I was trained to enter the finance world. Almost three years out of college, I am having second thoughts... So I am thinking of going for a Masters in Physics (preferably in Europe... Barcelona WOW) and have my eye on the Universitat Autonoma of Barcelona. They have a pretty interesting degree called High Energy Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology taught in English. This covers my general interest of the field. Other than my Physics and Calculus courses that I took in the past (earned A's in both), I don't much of a background. http://www.uab.cat/web/studying/off...ology-1096480962610.html?param1=1345648395535 I reached out to the head of the department at UAB who pretty much said, "it is a specialized area so you may have trouble... but you can try." He also said there is a Biologist who is in the course who is doing very well. I know Finance is not a "science" in that nature but this gave me some confidence that I would do well. Science has always come more natural to me. I am in the beginning stages of actually going forward with this but am definitely serious with my intentions! What do you guys think? Am I being ridiculous here?
