there's another topic like this somewhere down there but i'm different, and i didn't want to distract from that guy's question... anyway im a fairly good double major physics + math at big football state school. i'm easily top 5% of my physics/math class, first or second in terms of literal grades in all my classes. i had a rough 2 semesters where i got a 3.5 semester gpa so right now i'm sitting at a 3.65 but i'm well on my way to a 15 credit 4.0 this semester so i should be fine in terms of all that... i don't have an research or publications but i've applied for reus this summer and hopefully i'll get one, and if not i'll work with someone here. i can get good recommendation letters from good researchers who were my professors in my classes. etc etc etc. but i really don't want to go to grad school for physics. maybe math but if i did i want to study differential geometry and i don't know if i can get into a good place where they study that, not that i wouldn't go to a mediocre one... anyway what are some other "vocations" i should look into? could i possibly go into grad school for something completely different? like a foreign language? basically what are my options after i graduate? btw i'll be graduating spring 2010 with a double major, math+physics.
