Hello, I am going to be a Junior in high school next year and I am thinking about what I'm going to do at college. I am very interested in physics and have been for a long time, but I am questioning whether or not I am capable of the rigorous coursework required to get a degree in physics. Or with what I was thinking of doing, teaching at a the university level, a PhD. Ever since I was a kid I have been fascinated with science and physics seems to be the most fascinating (I'm not talking about the physics where you just calculate kinetic energy, the real stuff). I am not great at math but I would say above average (when I apply myself which isn't that often in my mundane math classes). I have talked to my math/physics teacher whom I greatly respect and he thinks I am capable. I just don't want to get myself into something I can't handle. The thing about me is, I hate math class (in case you hadn't noticed from my previous comment) but I enjoy doing math when applying it to physics or chemistry. But if I have to take a ton of math classes in college that will be ridiculously difficult and boring I'm not sure if I can do it. If I don't find a class to be interesting I do poorly which is my problem in math class (I hardly do homework in that class and fairly easily get a B). So I just want to get some opinions of what I should do. Thanks P.S. Sorry if I repeated myself which undoubtedly did.
