Ok here's the deal. I'll probably start a canadian school next fall and i need to choose a major. Canadian programs are more specialized so it's very important. Im interested in physics but obviously need a year of bio and 2 years of chemistry for the premed. So here are the options: Honours Physics: 1st year: 10 credits bio, 6 credits math, 10 credits physics, 10 credits chem. (so many because of the labs) 2nd year: 15 credits physics 9 credits math 3rd year 21 credits physics 3 credits math 4th year 21 credits physics (including the 6 credits of research) Now, here are my comments: The 1st year is supposed to be the easiest, and even in it i would take 36 credits!! Well 2nd year is impossible, as I would also need the 10 credits of org chem... And im not even talking about electives such as english. Also the classes get much much harder. I.e. 10 credits of 1st year physics is nowhere as hard as 6 credits of 2nd year.... So i cant take this option Now Physics/Physiology double major: 1st yr the same 2nd yr 12 credits physics +10 orgo chem 3rd yr 9 credits physics, 12 credits physiology, 9 math 4th yr 9 credits physiology research, 3 math, 9 physics, 3 biomed engineering My comments: This program is still too hard. i.e. 30 credits=5 really tough classes each semester These 3 credit courses seem much harder than the introductory 5 credit courses.... Im not satisfied with the breadth of the physics courses, as it's not nearly the same as in the honours program Now regular physics and choose my own electives: 1st yr the same onwards try to put in as many honours courses as possible while meeting the premed requirements; would try to substitute some regular physics courses from option 2 with honours courses from option 1 and substitute physiology project for physics project. The problem with this is that the program will not be any easier than the physics/physiology double major. I may overload if i choose my own courses. My father thinks its best if i follow a designated program. Also there is more prestige in an honours program. That's why my father says i should just forget about physics, and major in honours biology. p.s. I dont understand how someone can take 5 3-credit physics courses per semester, when in introductory year you only take 3 science courses per semester?? it seems a million times harder than the premed prerequisites. I need help!!
