Yeah, Biology isn't too math heavy...

And you get to play with animals.

Yes.

To bad we're not in the sixties, when 'ethics' didn't get in the way.
I'd be able to be arbitrarily testing the effect of ricin on things. For science, of course.

Geology and environmental science were more than adequate for transferring to university, for me. The environmental science class had a cool lab credit, and I found I could cope with the little bit of chemistry we had to do. Also, your community college may offer botany. Always check if the class will transfer to your chosen university.

Good Luck!

Fixed. And biology can be statistics-heavy.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

This is true, but you know so does physics. Also some scientist work in the field.

It is heavy on chemistry. If you study it in any depth, any how.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm gonna meet with an adviser after I do a placement test for math. Hopefully I can get some classes that I can both keep up with and learn new material from. In any case, I'm going to do some sort of science.

If by biology you mean rather zoology or ecology. But not so much even then.

You can always learn more math. I'm extremely skeptical that you're actually bad at it.

Introductory general-audience physics/chemistry/biology courses (for all that we made fun of them as science majors) are a good starting point to see what catches your interest.

If you are limited in how many courses you can take, it might be be worth simply picking up some first year textbooks. There are plenty of good ones.

If you are looking to improve your maths skills, I suggest giving something like https://www.khanacademy.org/ a try.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
