well technically I am a physics major but im in pre calculus right now, so unable to take a calculus based physics class for another 2 quarters. I read through most of the "so you want to be a physicist" thread, but I have a few questions. First of all, im at a community college, its a decent college, not exactly some random place in the middle of nowhere, but if theres any input on how you guys feel about starting your academic career in physics at a community college, let me know. Do I have a better chance at transferring to a university compared to non-science majors? secondly, im a bit overwhelmed at all the stuff I have to learn. Will it be like learning how to ride a bike? - you never forget. I simply cant comprehend at this time, how all this information will fit in my brain and not degrade over time. I really want to have a well rounded education in physics, and be able to help/tutor others in the future. So how does all that end up working out? anyone with a B.S feel like they could walk into any physics classroom and start solving problems in a similar way to a college freshmen going back to a physics class in highschool?
