Hi all! I'm having quite an internal dilemma. I really love physics and math and my dream for a long time has been to get a science/math phd and become a research professor. However, I just finished my first semester at university and I appear to be better at humanities/social sciences. My grades were: Philosophy(200-level): A+ Economics 101: B+ Physics: B Multivariable Calculus: B For math, I know that I easily could have gotten a B+/A- if my study habits were better. For physics, I feel that I only actually started working hard enough for a top grades about 2/3 through the class. However, my parents and advisor are really nudging me towards a econ/philosophy double major, and then to law school or graduate school in government/public policy or philosophy. Though I do love philosophy (I want to minor in it), I really want to be a scientists, but I am afraid that I don't have the ability and that I will ruin my GPA forever if I take math/physics next semester. Any advice? Anyone been in a similar situation?
