biophysicistscv Posted September 20, 2011 Share Posted September 20, 2011 Hello all, I wish I was under better mood today but I am not... Well, my question to all is simple: Should I drop out of my program and go to another? I studies Physics during Bachelor, subject I was interested in. I decided to do a Master's in Physical Chemistry, I was extremely attracted to. However, I thought I should use my skills in a more interdisciplinary research for Ph.D. I spoke with a professor before application time; I found his research interesting and he liked me. This early on connection helped me enter the Ph.D. program - in Biology though. I have been here through the summer and I am one month into the semester now (taking a biology course) and am extremely unhappy about my choices. My wife thinks I am exaggerating - but she is in the same program, 3rd year. I truly feel I should have gone to do a Physics Ph.D. Reason I did not do: (1) Subject GRE - Never do well on standardized tests; (2) Employment perspectives - Even though I did not believe, I always assume physicists can't get a good job. Now, my dilemma is: Should I stay - and try to conciliate some true physics aspect of my research (harder to do since I am doing collaboration work); Should I go? At the end of semester, either formally quit and find a job, prepare myself next year for the subject GRE, and try getting into a program. I am 28 years-old and really am trying to figure things out before it is too late. Thanks for reading. Any comments are truly appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
