Question by simple: Do you think Physics or Math is more difficult?
Not “for you” (i know you are all smart out there :) but in general, apples to apples – which is the more difficult science? I think physics is hands down – you really have to be smart to do physics.

Question by Angie :) : Is northeastern university difficult to get into?
I want to go for behavioral neuroscience next fall. I did terrible on my SATs and can’t take them again because of the deadlines. I wrote a pretty good essay though. I am a hispanic, first out of my family to go to college and my mom is single and we are both poor.

Is it really hard to get into?
Don’t send me the average SAT scores and data stuff because I already looked and a lot of times that isn’t the deciding factor. I want to hear from people personally!

Answer by eri
Not really hard. A friend of mine got in with a 2.9 as a transfer student, so you need to do a bit better than that coming from high school.

Question by faithless: Is it getting increasingly difficult to tell what is reality and what is not?
You turn on the the TV and there is a program about ghost hunters or mediums all edited to look real.
At the bookshop there is a row of New Age books.
The Mystic Crap shop is full of crystals and stuff.
Everywhere there is dial-a-psychic, horoscopes, lucky charms, ghost tours, every sort of woo for sale.

Given that we base our reality on what we see around us and what our peers believe is it any wonder that people are mistakenly believing that the paranormal is real?

Answer by Gazoo
Only if you aren’t sane or are really gullible.

I base reality on reality, not what suckers believe.

Question by doubt_is_freedom: What is it about math that makes it so difficult for so many people?
I would really like an answer from a neurological perspective (backed up by evidence) rather than baseless and unscientific educational theories. Are there any findings in neuroscience/neurology, neurochemistry, genetics, or MRI studies which shed light on the brain’s processing of math? What about those who excel in math from an early age (with little effort) are their brains somehow demonstrably different from the rest of the world?
OK, I’m aware of the right brain/ left brain thing, but many people who excel in music or art are also very good at math. And some who have great skill in logic and philosophy or language aren’t that good at math. I’m not sure that the hemisphere theory is really the answer. I’m very good at reasoning and critical thinking and making arguments, as well as the qualitative side of natural science (anthropology, biology, geology), but I’ve always struggled with math. The numbers just start “swimming” in my head after several minutes. I agree that “sequential” tasks (such as arithmetic) are where the difficulty lies; the “conceptual” part of math is not as much of a problem for me as the computational part.

Answer by Sugar
People poses talents for different things . Everyone is not gifted for math. Take me my gift is Science. It would be sad if every one could do the same thing .( Math) but nothing else. So I am happy we all have difference skills and talents. Now aren’t you.

Question by Sda Asdgasg: I want to do a neuroscience major and was wondering how difficult it would be?
I want to do this for pre med and have been researching it a lot and found out it is a liberal arts major, which tend to be easier to have higher gpas in. Is this true for neuroscience, would it be easier to get a high gpa in than say biology?

Best answer:

Answer by mark
Not necessarily, if you tend to be a science whiz then go for it. A lot of students struggle with upper-level science courses since that’s what you ultimately will be taking.

If that major really interests you go for it, don’t get involved with a science major just because of med school, then when you get to the interview you’ll have no real reason why you majored in the field. Most med applicants tend to get a science major which makes them a very typical applicant. Med schools want people that are unique and well-rounded.

But I’m not saying don’t do it, if you like it and it interests you, go for it. Also, all the upper-level science courses you will be taking to get that major is actually good for you, and med schools recognize that. Also, med schools know what are the “easy” and “hard” majors. So if you just doing it for easiness, i recommend don’t do it. Neuroscience doesn’t sound like a way to get a high easy GPA.

I’m a premed student majoring in psychology because i find it very interesting.

Question by redsaax101: How difficult is Neuroscience as an undergraduate major?
I’m thinking about majoring in neuroscience in college but I’m not sure how difficult it is compared to other general sciences such as biochemistry or biology. I want to end up going to Medical School to study surgical sciences and eventually become a brain surgeon. I was wondering whether majoring in neuroscience would give me an edge later on in Medical School.

Best answer:

Answer by rory_of_the_redwoods
Exactly what is meant by a neuroscience major differs depending on the college you go to as well as your personal choices. You can expect to take courses in both biology and psychology (especially physiological psychology). You may have a choice of going with a psychological or biological focus. However, some colleges tend to emphasize one track or the other depending on their faculty. The difficulty of the major is comparable to a “regular” biology degree.

A neuroscience major won’t give you any advantage for getting into medical school. It is also unlikely to give you much of an edge while in medical school. The medical school curriculum is generally at such a specialized level relative to an undergraduate curriculum that your exact undergraduate major doesn’t make all that much difference – regardless of your eventual medical specialty. If you’re thinking about doing a neuroscience major, do it because of your interest in neuroscience – not because it’s going to give you a hypothesized advantage in med school. That same advice applies to whatever undergrad major you choose.
