Recently I've been questioning my decision to go into Physics. I really like Physics and have enjoyed my classes but in my experience so far I haven't really enjoyed doing research. Also the prospect of spending my 20's as a graduate student with no money and no time to enjoy myself sounds awful to me. I only have one more year of undergrad left and at this point I kind of wish I were going out into the real world to get a job rather than grad school but it seems like it's almost too late to change gears at this point. I've spend the last several years completely focused on getting into a good Physics PhD program and I have a 3.9 GPA from a pretty good school so I could probably get into a good school but I'm just not sure if that's what I want for myself anymore. I've been working so hard for this but it's been at the expense of having a social life and being able to have fun in college. At this point I probably will just end up going into a PhD program because I feel like it's too late for me to change course but I'm interested in exploring other possibilities because I'm worried I'll end up dropping out. What other options are there for someone with an undergraduate degree in Physics? I've heard that a lot of people with Physics degrees go into programming but that sounds awful to me. How hard would it be for me to get into engineering? I think that electrical engineering sounds kind of interesting but I don't really know very much about engineering. Maybe this is just a passing thing and I'm just kind of burnt out from working so hard last semester but maybe I really shouldn't go into Physics. Has anybody else had this experience?
