Main Question or Discussion Point
I'm currently a sophomore in physics, and i'm pretty happy with my choice of major. Part of the reason I liked it was that it seemed like everyone chose it because they genuinely liked physics. I have other reasons too, I can easily see myself doing research later on, but this isn't my point. My issue is with other students' attitudes towards me. When i've talked to junior and senior physics majors, and I said i'm majoring in physics, the most frequent response i've gotten has been something along the lines of "oh, how sure are you?." I know that sophomore year is considered the first hard one, and a lot of people do drop out of the major sometime then, but why would that be the first thing to assume? I've gotten a lot more responses like "for how much longer?" than anything positive. How can anyone feel that they can assume that I can't cut it as a physics major? Does anyone else get questions like this, or do I just come off as a ditz? And why would you even ask this, if you like your major, why don't you want other people to do it also?
