Hey! I am currently on my last year of high school in my country ( I'm not from the us) and I'm torn between going to medical school and doing something related to physics, like astronomy or so. There is a course here called physical engineering but I'm not sure. Would you mind telling me how is studying physics in university? Ahhh I'm so confused. So sorry to bother. Love your blog ❤️
Hi! Physical engineering is not the same thing as physics; if you want to do astronomy you’ll have to find a physics course i’m afraid. I mean studying physics is both stressful and amazing. I think that my undergraduate studies where by far the hardest part. But you can do it if you learn how not to be discouraged by occasional inevitable failure. Good luck & thanks 🙂
Hi. Do you have any advice for someone who is looking to apply to graduate school but who graduated from college in 2016?
I’m applying for a PhD myself and so far i think that a good thing to do is to read the latest papers of the group/mentor you want to work with and maybe write down some ideas, idk for example i’ ve just finished my MSc and i’m kind of trying to link some research that i’ve done to the stuff i read in their papers, so to seem prepared & pretend to have good ideas. Good luck!
Hello! So I'm about to chose a career (im not from the us) and im thinking physics or medicine… I'm scared of choosing physics because I'm not so great at math. Could you please give me advice? How can I stop being afraid of math? What's it like studying physics? What should I start learning independently?? Thanks!
Hi! You can become good at math by practising. Maybe try reading by yourself some high school textbooks, if you haven’t done it yet. And i don’t know abt other people but i have fallen in love with physics by solving problems. Like, going home and doing the exercises in the textbook for fun. Doing physics at a higher level is not very different from that. Try and see how you like it. Either way, all the best
