Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello. I'm an European student who is about to graduate as a master next year.

Now i would be interested in grad school in the states, but, my bachelor's grades suck.

I have good research experience and since I started my master's I've really picked up steam.

My grades converted to the US (1-4) system are approximately 2.1 for the bachelor's, but I'm at about 3.5 for the master's. Weighing the both together one would get clearly less than 3.

Is it really so that me failing physics I and II is equal to having a 3 or 4 in QFT/GR etc.? I took the general GRE and landed on 770/460. Pretty sure I could do better on another more prepared try.

More generally, how are m.sc. vs. b.sc. degrees weighed when accepting ph.d. students?
