what to do?
« on: February 14, 2007, 10:52:36 PM »
well, im a chemistry student in highschool... all I can say is. I love it. Nothing better than this subject. All my other grades have gone slightly down ( dont worry, not that bad) and im getting really good in chemistry. I read the chem book in my spair time during other classes ( well all the time). What are some career paths for chemistry, colleges?

Would a college that specializes in say, chemical engineering be objective if I have a nearly 100 in chemistry and nearly that in math ( alg II, but im learning a heck of alot of calc on my own) , if I had lower B's for spanish, history and english?

Thanks,
mechMA

Yes, you would be fine.

Be advised that Chemical Engineering degrees tend to lead to commercial/industrial jobs, not research.

Chemistry and Chemical Engineering is a major field, with job opportunities all over the world in numerous numerous fields. There is no better subject to study! Glad you are enjoying it!

yes, i understand that aspect. thank you.

if not chemical engineering, what other feilds of work? What jobs include doing research?
any suggestiosn for a college in the north east?

So your saying, that a college would accept me if my chem and math and physics ( specific sciences) are high, but my others are lower?

Thanks.

Also it may be worth exploring the Department of Labor's website (dol.gov). They have a lot of good information. There is tons of information out there about careers, and what degrees lead to what careers. It's just a matter of knowing where to look.
