I wanna become a theoretical physicist and work on string theory and quantum mechanics and stuff like that but I don't know how. Should I go to a high rated school or just the oridinary? I don't need to get paid alot but I would like to get atleast the average(not sure what that is) but since i enjoy physics the paycheck doesn't matter(The question is how much does a theoretical physicist make). What does a theoretical physicist do daily compared to other physicist(s)? and I have a few more questions but i'll refrain from asking (right now). Im new to this forum and im not sure if I posted this right or anything so if im doing anything wrong just tell me. Anyways I put the prefix other because im not sure what to take since I talk about more than one subject here.
