I would like advice from physics majors please! Thinking of changing major

  1. Apr 20, 2012 #1
    I'm a math/chemistry major and thinking of changing to physics after a few classes and research experiences in physical chemistry I've had.

    I would like to know what it's like, what to expect, etc... How is the undergraduate research at your institutions and what do you normally do in the lab? I'm familiar with physical chemistry/spectroscopy techniques but what kind of research involves "pure" physics?

    I also would like to know what graduate school is like and how hard it is to find a job as a professor.

    I'd like views from both the theoretical and experimental sides if possible.
