The reason I am doing this is I have already taken lots of chemistry classes since I was previously a chemistry major, and I need one more chemistry class for a minor. However, condensed matter physics, which I am taking next semester, is apparently being cross offered as a chemistry class (solid state chemistry). So, I basically have a minor in chemistry.

Now, I also only need 3 additional math courses for a math minor also (so far I've taken calc 1-3, diffEQ, adv. eng. math. and prob/stats). For the three additional math classes I am considering linear algebra, PDE, and real analysis ( ).

Technically, for the dual major in EE/physics with the minor in chemistry I only need 34 more credits after this semester and I could be out of here by fall '07. However, some of the classes I need won't be offered until spring '08 anyways (quantum) so I don't have a choice to graduate early. Spreading out the 34 credits over three semesters is only 12 credits a semester, or I could tack on another math class each semester to pick up the minor while taking 15 credits a semester. hmmm...

So, should I take it easy the next three semester and only take on 12 credits a semester and walk with a dual major in EE/physics w/ minor in chem, or should I tack on an additional course each semester to pick up a math minor, which would require 15 credits a semester?

Perhaps I could use the free time I have by forgoing the extra math classes to get more REU experience...

What would look best to grad schools??

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
