I've ran into a problem where my local University, that I would be able to attend for no cost due to my close proximity (staying at home) and scholarships, does not offer physics as a major, only a minor. If I were to attend a different University, my scholarships wouldn't cover my costs due to the high prices of room and board. As a result, I would leave college with a sizable debt when I could graduate for free at my local one, which is a really good University where a huge chunk of my friends will be attending (which is a factor I account for). My University does however offer a pre-professional Chemistry major with a stronger curriculum meant for those looking to enter medical school or industry. My original intention was to do 2 years of general studies at local and then transfer to a physics undergraduate program, but I would still end up with a sum of debt that I don't want to incur if I can avoid it. So I thought, hey, why don't I follow through with a Bachelors in Chem and use it to find a job in a town that will pay for a Physics major down the line (and hopefully a graduate education). All while I give a Physics minor a shot to see if it's something that I can dedicate my life to. There are three problems. One, I may not be able to find an entry level chemistry job as I've heard that the job market isn't ideal at the moment. Two, I would end up in college for the same amount of time as a medical doctor (4 year Chem major, 4 year Physics Major, possibly another 4-6 years for Graduate school). That's a large chunk out of my life that I'm still not 100% on what I want to do with. I've taken a Calculus course and I'm pretty interested in learning about how the Universe works, but I have problems dedicating myself to a subject for a prolonged time. Finally, juggling a full time job and physics coursework could prove to be challenging beyond what I'm capable of. Apologies for the long post, but could anyone give me some life advice? I've already accepted admission into my local University and they've pretty much offered me a free ride to study there. Hopefully some understand why I would be hesitant to throw that away to attend another University without being sure what I want.
