Greetings! I’m a long time lurker; so let me apologize off the bat for popping in here with my first post being a request for advice, I’ll try not to ramble too much. Two years ago the idea of "changing course" on the direction of my life came up. I pushed the idea aside, assuming my interest in physics to be nothing but a hobby on the side, or something I wouldn't enjoy studying/working in. Now I'm at a point where I come home from work or class, and start studying physics textbooks with far more interest than the career I have or the degree I am pursuing. I am entering my final year on a business degree (Sadly I did not realize how little I enjoyed it until quite late), and it seems the best thing to do is to finish this degree up before studying physics - Unless there is a good reason otherwise, believe me I would love to dive into physics now! haha! To make matters a bit more complicated, I am certainly not a traditional student. I am 28, I started quite late, and I have bounced between part-time and full-time enrollment. I even had to drop two whole semesters due to some financial and health problems hitting at the same time. All the while I've worked full-time as the IT Manager for a mid-size company. Between my lack of passion for the subject and focusing on my job, my transcript and grades are fairly mediocre. I suppose my questions to you all are simply: Are there any particularly good resources out there for people who are interested in pursuing a second degree? Does anyone have any general advice for someone in this situation, or are there any particular hurdles I may have to deal with? I realize with my history that I won't be getting accepted into MIT or anything, but I assume I should be able to get into a half-decent undergrad program somewhere.
