Guys, i have planned time after time to go to college for Quantum Physics and i'm in my senior year of high school, so i have to start thinking really hard now. i recently got an invitation to a reception for MIT (the reception is in Atlanta Georgia for me) and i don't know if i'll go or not because it's so far away from me. First before i make any type of decision at all i need to know what kind of career quantum physics will allow for me and how much of an income i can get. i've tried internet researches but have come up empty handed. let me describe the kind of work i already do and purely enjoy: I love to theorize and to pick through problems. i'm not so interested in Earth or even the basic cosmos, but what i'm more interested in is the universe itself, the basic laws of the universe, how "IT" works and what more is hidden back there. that's the kind of work i'm into right now and wish to continue doing. any help?
