Hi all, I'm a senior in high school right now, and and headed for Kansas State University, fall 08. I'm genuinely curious about how the universe behaves, and learning to predict its patterns, as well learning why things work. This lead me to want to double major in physics and mathematics. But are there career opportunities for a guy with a bachelors of science in physics and math? My teachers generally tell me, I can learn all the same stuff in an engineering major of some sort and have tons of jobs available to me, otherwise I could also pursue a Ph.D. in physics and end up working with lasers or something... I spoke with an electrical engineer and he stressed with me that engineers only know enough to make something work, and aren't terribly interested in a conceptual understanding of the universe... On the other hand, I don't think I'll last all that long in school, a master's is likely the longest I'll stay in school; 8 years is way too much for me! Does anyone have any advice on my dilemma?
