Hello!

My name is Graeme and I'm pursuing a BS in Astrophysics. I have undergraduate degrees in business, economics, and analytics, and a Masters in business analytics. When I was nearing the completion of my MS, I rediscovered my love for science and enrolled in this BS program shortly after graduating. My long-term goal is to earn a PhD in Physics, Astronomy, or Astrophysics, and I hope to be a research scientist one day.

Here's the rub... I think I might be bad at physics? I desperately want to get better, though. The study techniques that worked in my prior programs do not seem to be working for my Astrophysics program. I'm hoping that I can engage with this community to identify and correct my gaps in understanding this material.

I look forward to chatting with y'all!

- Graeme

You have just finished your first year? What courses have you taken and how well did you do? Do you have any specific concerns?
