I was thinking about postponing my graduation one year to get a BS in Applied Mathematics in addition to my Physics BS. My goal is to get into a top Medical Physics program. I am currently a member of a Medical Physics research group here at my school and have impressed my advisor. He thinks I have an idea that is worth publishing. I know that Medical Physics relies heavily on mathematical modeling. Would it be a waste of time to stay here another year and get a second BS? In addition to gaining applied math skills, I think it would give me time to work on some projects and get my name on some publications from my Medical Physics research group. Plus my wife and I love the weather here in California and are not looking forward to moving back east for graduate school.
