I am about to graduate from college majoring in chemistry with a few minors (Math, Physics and Biology). I was a physics major, but due to some medical issues, I got an F in one of the required physics classes and subsequently had to drop it as a major. This issue was depression, and it took a very long time to find the correct medication regime. I understand the stigma associated with depression, and what most people think of those that have it, but that aside, I am only asking if this is feasible. I was wondering if it is possible to, given that I have done much of the work already (Despite that one F, I completed all the other required classes), go to a different (or the same one) undergraduate institution and get the degree in physics? Would I have to redo the entire degree, core requirements and all? Would it depend on the institution? (This has been a recent development and I have not yet looked deeply into it) Also, if I did chose to then get a PhD in physics, would I be too 'old' to get into entry-level jobs...anywhere (I am assuming that, with the F, academics is strictly out of the question) I am 23 now, I have a fairly low paying job for the next year, and no distant future plans, at least not anymore. On a slightly different note, would it be possible/feasible to apply to MS programs in physics (without a physics degree and the bad grade in a physics course), as another option? Any advice on this is appreciated.
