Hello, I'm a 25 year old veteran who is currently enrolled in school. I'm curious how many of you think that going after a degree in Astrophysics would be a waste for someone like me. I've just recently started going back to school after finishing my term of service. I am currently going to a community college, but hope to transfer to a full University by next spring. I'd like to know what I'm getting myself into, and whether or not I'm even capable of achieving this goal. I'm not by any stretch of the imagination a genius, however I might be considered slightly above average. Although my first Semester back to school was somewhat successful (4 A's and an A-) My time in College and High School before my military service was rather pathetic (cumulative gpa of 2.12 prior to my first semester back) I greatly appreciate the help any of you can give me, regardless of being positive or negative. Thank you for your time.
