Those who read this will probably think I'm all over the place, because I am. I really need help in sorting out what I want for my undergraduate education and my career prospects for the future. I'm currently a sophomore majoring in Biophysics. I have a decent overall GPA (to my knowledge), but I struggle through my science classes. I've recently learned how to study more effectively, so my progress in upper-level science class has improved. However, sometimes I question my life choices when I'm slaving over a lab report or stuck on a problem. As I'm creating my schedule for my 5th semester, I'm considering quite a few options: Drop my Biophysics major to become a Physics major, because it is 18 credit hours less and I don't have to take Organic Chemistry. Drop my Biophysics major, become a Physics major, but take Orgo to fulfill the pre-health requirement to have the option of going to pharmacy school. (Leaning towards this one) Dropping Biophysics also gives me the option to graduate a semester early. Keep my Biophysics major and suffer through these extra classes, but not have to take Linear Algebra or Differential Equations. My biggest issue is considering what I want to do in the future. Physics is like the English major of the sciences, but I'm genuinely interested in the topic and I'm not particularly interested in majoring in anything else. However, I really want to get a degree that will prepare me for the future and I'm not sure if physics will get me there. Here's what I've considered: Take all the pre-health requirements alongside my degree to have the option of entering healthcare if all else fails. I used to be pre-med but that ship has sailed. Patent lawyering Science journalism (I've always liked to write and I'm currently involved in the school newspaper. I'm also aware this is a dying career.) Become a re-entry student by taking some engineering courses post-undergrad to become an electrical engineer. Work for the media in companies such as Discovery Communications to put my love for media and science to use (This is kind of a far-fetched option, but if I'm going to be honest, I've thought about this a lot.) Are there any other options out there that seem promising for a person with a BS in Physics/Biophysics? If you were to choose, which degree would you consider more marketable? Also, how important is GPA in the real world? It's by no means low, but it's not impressive either. I would love any guidance or suggestions that you provide. Also, if you've reached this far, thanks for reading my long tangent.
