I'm a computer science student and I have a question

    Hello all science nerds, engineers, doctors, etc., I want to know how to become from a computer science major to a physicist. What does it take? How and Why? Thank you!

    Welcome to the PF. :smile:

    Please start a new thread in the Academic Guidance forum to ask this type of question. Please give as much of your background as possible, and which school you are currently in.

    @Greg Bernhardt , that reminds me of a story told by a "motivational speaker" from many years back named Zig Zigler. He took some getting used to but was actually quite good and had useful lessons, unlike the "content free" feel-good speakers like Tony Robbins.

    Anyway, he told the story (I'll condense it) of going into diner one morning on a really gray day with a driving rain and he said the the waitress "Hello darlin', how are you this fine sunny morning". She asked him if he was crazy, pointing out the window and commenting that this was one of the most miserable days in years. He looked at her sadly and said "Ah. You look outside to see what your weather is going to be like for the day. I look inside."

    Learning to look inside to decide how your weather is going to be is a useful trait, I have found. Of course, umbrellas are also useful :smile:
