    Yup, I have a PhD in physics.   

    In my freshman seminar, "primitive navigation", each year, I end up recruiting 3-4 students who become concentrators in physics or astronomy - so there's clearly some resonance phenomenon going on.

    I promise to keep an open mind, and not assume that the physicists need the rest of us to talk slowly so they can understand! ;-)

    I've had students from many professions, but no physicists. That I know
    of. Lawyers were the worst, complaining about the method of presentation.
    Doctors varied, some being demanding, but others really wanting to learn.
    But for the most part, I never knew my students' backgrounds, and it
    really didn't matter.
