I'm 16 and in highschool, and am working on planning, well, my life. I'm still not sure what profession I'd like to work in, but one of my options is physicist, astrophysicist, or possibly an astronomer. I'm really interested in physics, and I always have been since we first learned about it. Recently, I've been reading about a lot about relativity, and the possibilities of time-travel. I'd like to study it further. Anyway, here is my question to you. While I'm good with physics, I didn't do so well with Biology and Chemistry (remember, highschool level classes) and I didn't do too well in Geometry either. The thing is, I KNOW that I can do well in geometry, I was just in a poor position in life, and made some extremely bad decisions, and nearly failed geometry. How important is geometry if I wanted to seek a career in physics? And there's no way that I will be able to pay for a nice college, so I've been playing violin for 6 years (still 2 left, I'm in 10th grade) and am hoping that the violin, and 4 years of French, and semi-good grades (As,Bs, and Cs) might get me into a college. What should I do, and what are my chances at doing it? Any help is great. Thanks.
