How much does having a lower total gpa hurt you in the graduate school application process? For example, my overall gpa is a 3.7 but I've been getting all A's in my math/physics classes so my major gpa is a 4.0

Great! Do the graduate programs look into the differences in more detail? Grades are for three or more/so categories: Major Field, Courses in support of or in association for a chosen major field, and then General Education courses. Might not be so important but thought the finer question be good to know.Six.
Major GPA says something about how much physics you know.
Non-major GPA says something about what else you know. It also says something about how hard you will work at something that is not immediately what you are interested in.
