My academic story

  1. Aug 5, 2010 #1
    Hi I'm new to the forums. I've been reading a lot of the threads on this forum to help me decide what paths I should take and I've benefited enough to decide to join! Thanks everyone for your helpful advice. I've been battling which majors I should take for a long time, Very recently I switched back from a physics major to a biochemistry major. Even though I don't really like chemistry I really like biology but I also want to have a strong background in physics and math. So I felt like Biochemistry was the easiest way to combine all these interests (I'm planning in being a math minor too). I took a year of physics and although I didn't find the subject uninteresting I didn't find myself interested enough to major in it. Like I said I feel like I am interested in it only as background material. Nevetheless I would like to take quantum mechanics and physical chemistry as I find myself interested in these subjects. I also hope to take some ecology and evolution classes because I am interested in molecular evolution and finding and applying math to biology. I will probably have to stay another year at college to accomodate my switch but I ultimately decided it was worth it. Anyway I felt like telling everyone my plight. THanks again for your unknowing help
