    I already applied but it looks like i might have to reapply next year. I'm enrolled in a class that I'm only taking for fun, it does nothing for my major, but some schools do recommend taking it.
    Will it look bad if I take it pass/no pass in order to avoid the chance of getting lower than 94% and lowering my gpa for next years application?
    I have several weeks to decide and i will get some graded work before the grading basis change deadline

    If your cGPa is ok, then it shouldn't matter.

    I had a few pass/fail classes in undergrad. Heck, I took my whole last quarter pass/fail ;) They weren't prereqs (they were religion, psy, and hum courses mostly) so I don't think schools cared - or if they did, they didn't address it with me.
