Personally I loved physics so much more :). (Might have to do with my bad orgo grades vs good physics grades lmao)

Ochem 1,000,000,000 times more.

I never understood why I need to know the centripetal force exerted by a satellite orbiting Earth...
I'm pretty neutral towards ochem. Didn't love or hate it xD. Idk I like applying math and word problems I guess... Was also fun using calculus in physics II >: ).

But that makes sense considering you're good at math and seem to enjoy it. I took physics without the calculus and still struggled :laugh:

Physics 1 >= OChem 1= OChem 2 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Physics 2
Interesting lol. For me it's Physics 1~Physics 2(harder but more challenging and kinda fun) > Orgo 1>>> Orgo 2(did so awful in this class).

Well actually for physics I i took it without calculus and switched to the one with calculus for physics 2 :rolleyes:. I just liked it too much and my teacher thought i was up to the challenge. Also wanted to prove something to my engineering friends/friends in calc based physics that they weren't all that xDD.

Ochem all the way. No math, just puzzle solving for me. I could do ochem problems all day for fun..

A lot of my friends are like that too xD. Most people love it or hate it. I find myself stuck in the middle :(. I am having an identity crisis ;)

Gen chem > ochem >>>>>>>>>>>>>> physics. I barely passed 2 of my physics classes LOL.

If they had a physics section on the DAT, I would have gotten a 12 Phys 14 TS 16 AA
Oh I don't mind gen chem at all lol! My best DAT section although did pretty subpar in the classes :(. LOL this may have been my dream and my dream only but I would've liked physics on the DAT and no PAT section. Maybe I could get a 25 AA then ;) with a 26+ physics (now i'm just being a jerk)

Ewww...
JK. I would've honestly done horrible hahaha. OC is my saving grace.
And let's all be real if we gotta..
Pchem > Ochem > Gchem
:cool:

To be fair, I rocked kinematics, but when it came to electricity and magnetism, and right hand rule (or was it the left hand rule? hmmm..... :thinking:) I was so lost.

Not the biggest fan of those rules but I was able to figure it out reasonably well :). I liked how involved the integrals got in physics II. Barely did a derivative in physics I lol.

Organic was actually really fun and easy to learn for me. I was actually teaching my friends.
Physics on the other hand... well the labs were easy ;)

Sorry to jack your thread dude..

But anyone have thoughts on Integral Calculus (I think it's called Calc II in the states). Math/physics have always been things that interest me, but I've never considered myself particularly talented at them. For this reason, despite loving differential calculus in first year, I have refrained from taking anymore math courses and I am now going into my (hopefully) last year of undergrad.

Since this might be my last chance to take undergrad courses, I was thinking of taking some courses that interest me, as opposed to the usual bird courses I take. However, GPA is king at the end of the day, and if the calc II horror stories are true I might have to rethink this.

Thoughts?

Oh I was awful freshman year. Dropped my GPA slightly I guess. I had about a ~3.1 gpa that year. Makes me want to cry and jump off a cliff. Worst year of college grades wise.

Damn I may have to rethink this man. Don't worry about your old marks man, can only move forward from here.

High school -> University can be a rough transition, but it seems that you have worked hard and learned from the experiences.

Oh yeah I was so lazy in high school and still pulled off good grades. College literally destroyed me. Heck I didn't even learn my lesson the 2nd year either. Took till I was a junior sadly so my grades are permanently in shambles. Thanks for the encouragement :). I'm just hoping my low GPA doesn't lead to another 20+ rejections...

I hated physics. Especially E&M.
It's interesting that both of these courses are very 3 dimensional when it comes to their concepts.

Organic is a puzzle. I really liked both ochem 1 and 2; really, they were probably my favorite hard science courses.

I disliked both so much when I took the classes, but I've begun to love orgo when re-learning the material from Chad.

Loved ochem. So much so that I considered taking a pure synthesis + lab course in ochem.
