    Astrophysics is an optional module with straight physics here at King's. Some of my friends are doing it, seems OK.

    hehe, I like astrophysics (I'm only doing it as an option in IB physics SL though). And I should probably mention that the teacher who told me this had a PhD in astrophysics himself, lol.

    Wanted to do the Physics with Astrophysics course with a year abroad, but they've put me down for straight Physics with a year abroad. Astro doesn't really start till 2nd year, though.

    I wanted to be an astrophysicist when I was younger
    I seem to have gone in a completely different direction now though - I'm a potential Anthropologist and it's lonely feeling like the only one

    Oh well - everyone has different interests lol! I can't wait to do the biological side to anthropology in particular - genes are interesting.

    My friend has applied for Astrophysics - so far I think he's had offers from UCL and Southampton and a rejection from Imperial.
