There is literally nothing wrong with studying theoretical physics. All engineers here are just pseudo-intellects who boast about their "god tier" subjects and shun physics.

Who cares? You graduate with your dissertation. You will probably get your shit together faster and be able to publish your research first.
I agree. Physics is alright, but if you study any field of Biology then you should be lined up against a wall and shot. There is absolutely nothing to be gained from studying the life sciences.
>>not studying pure mathematics to then go to grad school in theoretical physics and immediately be better than any physics major
Why not just do both? If you are going to be following the more theoretical track in a physics undergrad program, the overlap with a mathematics program should be huge and getting both degrees not terribly difficult. You then get the training to develop your physical intuition as well as a better grasp on the mathematics.
Engineers don't even consider themselves intellectuals, never have never have never will, because they don't need to pretend to be contributing to society in some vague intangible way to suck cock for funding like those faggots in the philosophy department. They don't need to this because it's the most successful discipline in human history that has shown the most valuable and tangible real results and ended up providing such powerful tools which found more fundamental answers than two thousand years of deductive guess work ever could.
Stop being insecure. Intellectualism is dead anyway. We positivism now.
Artes Mechanicae master race.
Lib arts can suck my cock (right after bringing me my coffee, you stupid faggots).
>Engineers don't even consider themselves intellectuals
Holy shit this has to be b8.
The amount of fedora tipping hyper atheist "debate me" engineer/comsci memers I run into is way higher than any other major.
>studying biology to get into medicine
Take a look at this graph:
I'd be a better doctor AND I'd have more chances of becoming a doctor simply because I study mathematics
AND I DON'T EVEN WANT TO BE A DOCTOR!
Well, considering that america is one of the biggest and most populated countries and also gives degrees that are very valuable and recognized internationally for various disciplines I'd say that if math majors can make it into medicine in the US, there is no reason why math is objectively better for medicine all over the world.
Unless you want to claim every person in charge of med school admission is a retard.
You are right.
I have you thank you biologists for creating a platform in which I am a more favourable candidate than yourself.
But really, I thank you because back in the day mathematicians were too busy with actual important stuff so they would have never gotten the time to fuck around with dead human bodies.
OFFICIAL MAJOR RANKINGS:
Any Major you love > Any Major you do for job security > Any Major you do to impress anons on a FBI honeypot image board
This is true but here we are not measuring majors on personal preference. And if you actually like your major then there is no reason why you should care about we shitting on it... unless there is a voice in the back of your mind telling you that maybe you don't enjoy the subject as much as you have convinced yourself...
But you know, who cares.
This ni??a done went full retard.
