So let me give you a little background on myself first. I'm 19, I live in Alberta, Canada, and I'm currently in my first year of college taking "Environmental Sciences". I chose that program basically because I met the requirements and it was the easiest route for me to take without upgrading. I'm your classic underachiever. I didn't try in high school and now I'm kicking myself for it. I've had a love for physics and space sciences for most of my life. I knew I was in the wrong program when I was supposed to be studying for a Zoology test, but instead found myself in the library reading "The Feynman Lectures on Physics". I did quite well in physics in high school and I've always been quite good at math. So, I want to try to get into my local universities Physics program for next fall (University of Lethbridge). Over the past hour or so I've been browsing some of the pinned articles and threads and here's the main points I've noticed through most of them. I just want to know if there's anything else I should know, so if you have any advice for me please do post it. 1. Take as much Calculus as humanly possible beforehand. My college has 4 Calculus courses. Pre-Calculus, Techniques of Calculus, Calculus I, and Calculus II. Techniques of Calculus transfers to the University, so I think that would probably be the best choice, but should I take more than 1 of them? 2. Don't go to a big fancy university for undergrad programs. Apparently they aren't as personalized and the classes are too big from what I've read. I was looking at going to McGill or U of T but is that really even worth moving across the country for? 3. First year physics usually has "weed out" courses, so I shouldn't fret if I don't walk out with all A's. I really hope this isn't the case, but I guess it's good to know. That's all I can really think of for right now, so if there's any pointers you have for me post away!
