Yes, another one of these threads. GET OVER IT! Just kidding LOL. A few disclaimers: I do have a practical reason for considering a double major. A career path I have been strongly considering in the past two years is to become a forensic scientist (crime lab technician). Also, this isn't just a "CSI phase", because I've read several books and web-articles on the actual aspects of the career. Plus, I don't watch those shows anyway. Jeopardy! is my favorite. It might be a bit naïve to think a double major gives you better employment prospects, but I honestly don't see why not in this case, considering both fields can be applied on the job (ballistics, toxicology, accident reconstruction, etc.) Do you think all of the extra work would be worth it? I asked the physics department at the school I'm attending and they recommended the "materials science" track. I checked it out, and it seems like that's more of an engineering route. If it's stupid and unrealistic, don't be afraid to say so. I can handle it. I'd be willing to settle with a different science or math related career. Thanks everyone for your input.
