right now, I am considering a few degreesReply
I was originally going to go for something social science related, like international affairs or economics, but I've decided I would prefer something more technical....like physics, astronomy, mathematics, IT (with a degree in information technology, or computer information systems), or computer science.....I know that I need a degree that will lead to a job that is well suited for someone like me, not just something I am interested in....physics and astronomy have always fascinated me, ESPECIALLY astronomy....but I can only get a doctorate in astronomy...id have to start with degrees in physics.....mathematics is good, but throughout my high school, I have not done well in theoretical "pure" math classes (although I have done terrific on exams, with a 97th percentile in the nation in 1 exam (ACT) and 70th percentile in the other exam (SAT), the one I took last year)......Ive been told by my parents that the reason I have not done well on math classes is because during my second semester of 8th grade, I had to switch middle schools in the middle of the semester, and then switch math classes back and forth, and so I lost track.....and in the 9th grade, as well as earlier, I got so arrogant from bring so good at math that I didn't study, thinking I could ace it on intuition......as for physics, I am torn between physics and mathematics, but worry that if I study physics I will be tempted to get a PhD, which would mean being broke for a long time, and I'm torn between a PhD in physics or astronomy...I would also want to use physics in non scientific fields such as quantitative finance, business, computers, etc. I have never truly been good at computers, and don't have an interest in studying it in my free time, but I feel it would be good for me because there are always jobs and it would be suited for someone with autism, and my other mental health conditions.....I also want to be influential and respected, and have some degree of prestige......does anyone work in any of these fields, and can share experience or wisdom?

Phrase your precise question in the form of a supplication ("dua"). If your question is answerable, you will receive enough clues to discover the full answer. You will have to supplicate often enough and be patient enough to allow the clues to materialize.Reply

This is your last warning about creating the same threads. Bump your old threads if the advice is insufficient.
