Greetings, My question is simple: Would it feasible for me to be a physics major? Why I am interested in physics? I have a passion for understanding how things work. It has always been an interest of mine. Now, why would someone question if being a physics major would be right for them if they loved it? I am 22 and about to start my first semester of community college. Why community college? I work a full time professional job in MRO purchasing. I also did not do well in math during high school. Mainly because of work ethnic and because I never planned to do anything with math so I did not focus on it. Now we fast forward to the present: I have learned a lot over the years. I have worked a professional job for four years (I managed to get lucky in the job market after I graduated) and it has taught me a lot of life lessons. I now manage my time, have a much better work ethnic, and interpersonal skills. I will be doing a transfer program in CC, and intend to apply myself. I graduated in 2009, so naturally I now have to take a remedial math course. Does this doom me? Is it feasible for me to recover and go on to become a great physics student? For undergraduate I would be looking at ideally a B.S in Physics (maybe with a concentration in Astrophysics, one of the more awesome degrees offered at UNCC, the university I will most likely attend) with a minor in Chemistry. Past my undergraduate degree I want to either pursue an MD or a PhD in Physics but I have a good while to decide on which path I want more. I ask this question because my advisor warned me against a physics degree because of my lack of physics in High School and generally seemed to try and turn me away from pursuing that path. That I had been out of school for too long and should pick a major that was easier. This made me really doubt if I would make a good physics student. I have the desire, the will to study… but am I trying to join the game too late? Can I go from remedial math to successful physics student?
