Hardest part to get meteorology degree?

Postby Caribbean Traveler » Wed Mar 03, 2010 11:47 am

I have had this question asked many times, especially with school talks. Meteorology is heavily reliant on math and physics. Before giving up and saying "that's not for me", hard work can pull you through. That's how I made it through. I don't consider myself a math wiz, but I do know how to work hard. You don't know what you can acheive before giving it your best!

That is good advice regardless of what you do in life. Don't give up easily and dont't underestimate what you can do.

Mr. Johnson,

what you you say was the hardest part of getting you degree if you don't mind asking.

That's a tough call. I would say either some of my physics classes or calculus / differential equations classes. A few of the meteorology classes were hard too, but I enjoyed them more.

Thanks Mr. Johnson. I would guess math and physics scares a lot of people away from meteorology!

I love math and physics, but meteorology isn't a career choice for me.

As I mentioned before to someone else, thats probably a good choice. Meteorology isn't for everyone as a career.
