Main Question or Discussion Point

Remember my "I Am A Failure" thread, where I was depressed about being rejected to a college?

Well, this thread is the opposite.

This thread serves but one purpose.

For me to state to everyone I know and a lot of people I don't know that I just got accepted to Wazzu!!

I feel absolutely euphoric.

Congratulations!

Keep in mind to take things one step at a time. You can't change the past, but you can always work forward from the present. Remember to break large goals into smaller manageable goals so that way you don't get overwhelmed.

I'll be honest with you here, sure why not. Don't minor. Try to get BS/MS in 5 years or whatever allows you to learn the most about a single subject. Don't skimp out on the liberal arts either. Sure now that I've taken lots of them its mostly stupid b.s. to me but you dont know the lesson until you've learned it.

Point is. Chemistry and Physics are not related. If you were to take lots of biology classes alongside with chemistry or math thats different, but majoring in Chemistry and then minoring in Physics at most will give you like modern physics exposure and electrodynamics classes, thats in addition to physics 1+2 with labs. I don't see the point

Well, I just enjoy some of the physics stuff, so I want to learn about it.

Although, considering that classes cost money, that part may change.

Precisely. Having a masters degree puts you way, way, ahead of the curve. Wasting time on classes that won't give you an edge in either grad school or employment opportunities is hazardous to your lifestyle. Taking 2-3 extra classes in biology (microbiology, genetics, biochemistry) in addition to chemistry courses will give you an advantage.

Once you get to the point where you can understand and learn things yourself, you can just read up on physics or whatever will float your boat by then.

Unless you need it for your degree, you might want to study physics on your own. Judging by your posts, I'm sure you're fully capable of self-studying. As far as I can tell, a college degree is mostly based on work you do on your own(papers, studying, homework, etc). The point of degree programs isn't to educate a student, but to give them credit for what they have learned.

Haha... I live only 100 miles away. So I'm used to the rain and the cold weather that doesn't exist anymore in Spokane for some reason.

I want winter back...

But no! No sad thoughts today!
