Main Question or Discussion Point
I am currently about to graduate high school. I recently have found a new fascination, Physics. I'm a little upset with myself that it took me this long to realize this fascination, but I will have to move on from here on out. I did decent in high school, decent in math, and decent in my science classes. I took a few AP classes my senior year (AP Euro History, AP Micro/Macro Economics) which I did fairly well in. My point is I should have done better in high school because I am actually quite intelligent (not trying to sound boastful or trying to brag), I guess I let my laziness consume me. I did apply and get accepted to a few schools (nothing special, Rowan University, Rider University, etc...). I figured to myself that if I go to community college and do very well that I will be able to get into better universities while saving a decent amount of money. My concern is this; going to a community college will obviously cause for a tougher path, but is it still possible that I will achieve success in the field of Physics? My most specific dream is to be able to go into Astrophysics, but that's way down the line. Also, I'm a little rusty on my math so I plan on self studying certain maths over the summer with the help of my brother. So in general what I need help with is what classes should I take in Community College, and assuming I do well, where should I transfer? Your help is very appreciative and I will be grateful for any response.
