Hi, I'll start off with some background information. I am a student at UIowa, going to be a junior, and I was pursuing a pre-med degree. After taking Phys 1, I discovered a newly found passion for the subject. I decided to pursue a PhD in physics. I had a considerable amount of time to verify this, and I am sure this is what I want to do. Also, the only physics major classes I have completed are Calc 1 and Phys 1. I am thinking about transferring to UIUC. Not only is it cheaper for me to attend there, the university has an excellent physics program . The downside of this is I would have to take this fall semester off, which starts very soon, in order to make this a reality. I am leaning toward transferring to UIUC. I am curious on what your opinion is on the matter.
