I'm a physics major looking forward to applying to a joint JD/MSc program OR PhD program. After participating in an internship, I realized that becoming a research scientist is not something I may want to do but I still would like to work with science. That being said, I would consider the JD/PhD before the PhD. I want to do something more hands-on like engineering. I would change my major to engineering but my physics department does a better job at funding, supporting, and preparing students. What can I do now to show engineering schools that I am prepared to work towards a Masters in Engineering or Engineering Physics? Things about me: -Physics major with math minor -3.86/4.00 GPA -Climate modeling research student at my university since freshman year -This summer I did an REU dealing with electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) -I know I can get great recommendation letters from my calculus and physics teachers -Don't know any languages yet. I will learn Python or FORTRAN (self-taught) this semester and C++ next semester (school course) Thanks!
