Main Question or Discussion Point
Hi PF! I have a B.A. in Philosophy, but later in college I developed more of a passion for physics, and would like to return to school. The idea right now is to study independently for 2 years (I'll need at least that much time to save up some money), and then enroll in a post-bac program that can prepare me for grad school. Can anyone offer an opinion on the program at Columbia? They're the only school I've been able to find with a post-bac program that actually caters to physics. Any other advice on how to pursue this goal would be appreciated. I didn't take any physics in college, and only a little bit of math. However, in the last year I've learned trig, differential calc, integral calc, and little multivariable calc. I'm hoping I'd be able to place out of as much of the pre-requisite math as possible. Currently, my biggest concern is making sure that I use the next couple of years wisely, in terms of making the most thorough preparations I can, and that's where I could use the most guidance. Thanks!
