Of the combined majors, mathematical physics looks the most attractive to me. This program, at most schools, will give me a BSc(physics) and a B. Math. I am quite a motivated math student, and I believe that I would enjoy more of a mathematical emphasis on my studies(although I admit that I know nothing and physics is probably enough math as it is). A representative from the University Waterloo told me that the Mathematical Physics students tend to do less labs and more theoretical courses.

This all sounds neat to me, but I don't really have any concrete reasons for going through the trouble of doing a double degree program. I am fairly confident that I wish to be a research physicist, but I, naturally, have no idea what field I would specialize in yet, so I don't know if a mathematical physics program would be an advantage or a possible disadvantage.

Any suggestions?
