Engineering --> Physics & Math Hello all, I applied as a transfer student ( junior level ) to all the UC schools (except Merced :yuck:) as a first choice in Elec Engineering and second in Pure Math. My first choice if accepted is Berkeley. Lately, however, I've been worried that EE could, over time, become too dry and routine without much creative thought to keep me interested. My ultimate passion is studying theoretical physics & Pure Math. My only hesitations in going this direction have been due to reasons of finance. I'm feeling a little trapped as I sent in the application months ago, and expect decisions in the next couple of months. I am wondering what my options might be. Is it too late to get into physics or math? Is it possible to get into a graduate school in physics or math with an undergrad EE degree? Would double majoring help ( ie the second major would be in either math or physics ). If I do follow through with the EE route, I will most likely spend all free time studying physics and math on my own, (I do so now anyhow). Is it possible to obtain the same working knowledge of a Phd without actually going throught the process, ie: a seriously motivated hobbyist? Any opinions / comments are deeply appreciated. Thanks.
