Dear PhysicsForumers, I will be applying for University soon. I am in a dilemma now. How do you know if physics is for you? I mean, i do like physics but I really have no idea if i'm able to make this last me a lifetime. How do you really know you don't like, but LOVE physics? I have been under peer pressure from my parents as well. In Singapore, there isn't really much of a career prospect for physicist. It's either a teaching profession or work in the only research Institute in Singapore. This has been troubling me for awhile now. I am afraid that this might be a decision made in the heat of the moment and I might regret it in the near future. Has anyone been through the same situation as me? I need some guidance! Thank you so so much.
