Hello Physics Forums, I have been a member here for some time, and though I keep up with many of the forum discussions, I have never posted anything until now. So here's my deal. My first two years of college were spent at a community college planning to be an economics major. By the time I transferred to a University I decided I wanted to simply pursue math, even though I hadn't even taken calculus. I made the switch, and as far as personal enjoyment and grades are concerned, everything has gone reasonably well (this is my second semester at the University). However, as I am sure most of you are well aware as you read this, I am really behind, and it is going to take me quite a bit more than the typical four years to graduate, even while taking a heavy course load. My plans are to go to grad school for a master's in either statistics or math. I am wondering if this late switch, and the time it will take me to graduate, will look poorly to Universities where I apply? I have seen somewhat similar discussions, but none of them (that I have been able to read, of course) seem to address a situation or question particularly similar to mine?
