## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello everyone.First of all let me introduce myself.My name is Adrian I'm 20 years old I'm a freshmen in college and I live in Romania.My story is kinda short.After I got my Highschool final exam from Physics I started liking it.Now I study Systems Engineering cause it was my only option due to the fact that I didn't get a very high grade at the exam.My mathematic background is the following : Algebra,Geometry,Trigonometry,Calculus (single variable),

Calculus (multivariable),Linear Algebra and Partial Differential Equations.In terms of Physics background so far I've learned the following:Classical Mechanics,Electricity and a bit of Electromagnetism.Like 5 months ago I started searching for some physics problems when I randomly found something about Quantum Mechanis ;Double Slit Experiment,Wave Function Equation etc.After that I was hooked to physics and I saw it at something very bad but at the same time something very beautiful.Now my questions is,does a random dude like me have a chance of becoming Theoretical Physicist.Mind you here in Romania we don't have such a thing as Theoretical Physicist "field" in college.So my only choice is to go to the US and study there somehow.If someone can enlight me on the requirements on attending a physics college in US like(math needed etc) I would gladly appreciate it.If you have some questions recarding my studies feel free to ask.

Thank you,

Adrian
