I'm a junior in high school and I've started with my "plans" early for college and beyond. I'm going to be finishing partial differential equations and introduction to quantum mechanics at Stanford EPGY before I finish my senior year which will put me very much ahead in physics and math, which are the fields which I want to study most. However, with the economic situation and all, lately I've had to get my head out of the clouds, not to mention the fact that for the most part, physics and math graduates don't have much better job options that those who took a 4 year or even a 2 year degree, except of course for acadamia which gets extremely competitive. However, I've been programming since I was about 9 years old and have a lot of experience with many languages both low level, high level, and web. I've had three part time jobs so far with the best one paying 25$ an hour, working for various companies and it's been great. I had very flexible hours, made more money than any of my classmates who had jobs, and it was something I enjoyed so I know I can find a job in software with flexible hours and decent, if not outright good, pay. However, I enjoy studying physics and math so much more so my question is, is there a way I can combine the three fields and do a double or even triple major and, if I go on to graduate/post graduate studies, combine them such as with quantum computation? That way, I'll have the degrees to work in applied mathematics (possibly) or computer science which is a massive field and if I get into a graduate school, go on with my studies. Possibly my greatest want is to go into aerospace engineering but I've scratched that off my plans for the most part because it deviates so much into a fourth subject. Also, to what extent will taking the two classes at EPGY help with a double or triple major? I know that many, if not most, universities will not accept it as credit, but will they let me take more advanced courses in those areas (which could mean having to take graduate courses as an undergrad)? Final question, how could pure/applied mathematics combine with computer science? I've heard from many people of having these dream jobs working for banks and other financiers or even major sports teams, to do their math. Would this be a reliable option or just a pipe dream with maybe a tenth of a percent of applied mathematicians getting this kind of job?
