I'm currently an Honours Chem student at UBC (I'd say a fairly reputable school), but I'm slightly disenchanted with the program. I absolutely hate organic chemistry, and there's just not enough math thus far. I'm thinking of either elaborating my degree so I do a Combined Honours in Chem and Math, or ultimately switching into Honours Physics and delaying myself a year (instead of going into my 3rd year of chem or chem/math, I'd be going back in second year as a physics major). However, here's a list of what I think of both: Chem: - fascinating in the theoretical side; I really enjoy physical and inorganic chemistry. - the job market seems more promising (at least in Canada), and my skillset is more widely applicable. Also, grad school is probably easier to get into (especially with a chem/math degree). - I still have a chance at applying to medical school with a pretty good GPA. Physics: - unbelievably interesting, at least when explaining how the universe and everything in it works. - more mathematics. - I'm worried that I won't do as amazingly as I think, but I'm pretty sure that it's just inhibition at this point. I can't find any help, sadly, without a bit of bias. Please, help me figure out what's best for me - both in terms of job market and overall happiness. Thank you! EDIT: as for graduate work, as a chemist, I'd probably be doing inorganic/physical stuff - maybe even chemical engineering. As a physics grad student, I'm not entirely sure at this point.
