I am starting college as a freshman this August. I have chosen to go to my Community College for financial and family reasons. I am going for my A.A. degree with the desire to transfer to the state university to major in mathematics. I have college credits, and am scheduled for Calc w/ anal. geom III and Diff Equations. My questions are: 1. Is going to a college with little to no prestige in the scientific community at this level going to hurt me? 2. I count 24 credit hours different between a BS in math and a BS in physics. After a BS in math, is it usualy ~year to BS in physics?
