Hi, I'm a physics major, and the thing about that is, well, it's tough. So, freshman year I got A's, and for physics majors, the freshman courses are 200 level courses. I figure that satisfies the premed physics requirement. Likewise, for math, I did very well, but since I'm a physics major, I continued through 400 level math courses and did well there too. I figure that takes more than enough care of the premed math requirement. So, here's my problem: 400 level physics didn't work out as nicely as 400 level math. I got a couple C's in quantum mechanics and I got a D in statistical thermodynamics. Will my upper level physics class grades matter on a medschool app if I did well in the basic physics req? Did I shoot myself in the foot? This is especially painful because I double majored in English- and unlike physics, I can honestly say English is a joke major and getting A's in 500 level English classes is ridiculously easy. English saved my gpa. If I had majored only in English, I'd have my good grades in the basic science classes premed requires, plus a high gpa. Instead, by double majoring in physics, I have bad upper physics class grades pulling my gpa down. How would all this generally be viewed? Could my BCPM maybe not include the advanced physics but only the freshman grade? Thanks for your advice!
