Hi all, I just found out that the college I will be attending this Fall is no longer offering the program that I wanted to do (Computer Information Systems) as undergrad. It got me thinking about what I really want to do. So I moved to America from the UK almost a year ago. Instead of fulfilling my high school senior year in high school, I attend the local community college and have completed Calculus 1 and 2 (both I excelled at and received As for, without doing a complete pre-calculus course) and my english core requirements. I will be starting as a freshman at Florida Institute of Technology this fall, I just turned 18. I love computers, the hardware of PCs specifically and putting them together. The thought of the new Geforce 7900GTX excites me and the new Physics Processing Units make me joygasm. I had originally wanted to do Computer Science, but I don't really want to spend the rest of my life in a company office figuring out a bug in some software (as good as I am at programming). I like to work with my hands. I switched my focus to System Administration and Business, but I realize now that one can very easily get into that by technical Certifications alone. I am thinking about Computer Engineering, the idea of Quantum Computing is exciting. I am also thinking about Astronomy/Astrophysics (a degree option under Space Sciences at FIT). FIT is, I believe, a very good school for space sciences. Space in general is fascinating to me, as is Relativity. If i'd have to specify what is most interesting to me, it's would be propulsion. Also, the field i'm best at in Physics is Optics, and it's a major part of Astrophysics at FIT. Is it true that there are not that many Astrophysicists around? One last note, I prefer working as a team (2+) to individually. Feel free to scold me for any naivety you come across. I am very good at math and problem solving, but i'd never considered actually following the road of a scientist until now (I know I might end up being employed in the corporate sector, not in R&D, but i'm ok with that too).
