Hello, I am 17 years old and interested in physics as a career. I recently viewed this link and became very concerned. http://www.gradschoolshopper.com/gradschool/rankby.jsp?q=2&cid=3 It looks very difficult to become accepted to graduate school for physics. I just want to earn a Ph.D and do research in experimental high-energy physics. After high school, I plan on attending College of Dupage (community college) and participating in a community college internship at FermiLab. After community college, I will probably transfer to University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign to continue majoring in physics. I live in Chicago metropolitan area so FermiLab and Argonne are local. I am just a little worried that my path to a physics doctorate will not go well. What should I do during my undergraduate studies? Will additionally minoring in math increase my chances? Just any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
