So my second semester is coming to an end and I didn't do as well as I know I can. I know I did well in Calculus 2 and Physics 2, but my other classes I'm afraid weren't as good. This semester was hard for me because it was a lot harder than the first and on top of that I got a concussion half way through and have been battling post concussion headaches every since. I know I learned from the mistakes I made, but will this bad semester ruin my chances of a good transfer or even getting into grad school?

Concussions are serious business. I hope you're feeling better.

In general, I don't think a grad school committee will care how you did in any non-math, non-physics course. After all, they're interested in how well you will do once you're focused exclusively on physics; the fact that you kept your math and physics grades up while healing from a concussion could be seen as a good thing (that is, if you mention the concussion in your statement of purpose).
