Hello, I'm new here so forgive me if I'm posting this in the wrong place. I have several questions pertaining to the schooling required to become a physicist and the everyday life of a physicist. So my first question is, are there any universities within the United States that have a good physics programs? I have done some research and it seems like the only schools that pop up are schools with holistic admissions. I am also currently enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. So I was wondering if I should even attempt a PhD in physics due to the fact that I will be starting college later than the average joe.
