Do grad schools weight your major gpa more than your total gpa? Or are they considered about equal? I read through a couple hundred profiles on physicsgre.com, people post their stats and where they got in. I noticed that almost everyone had a higher physics gpa than general gpa. What would schools think of a person who's general gpa is higher than their physics gpa? At my school the physics and math courses are a LOT harder than the more interesting gen. req. fulfilling electives, and I'm probably better at humanities than I am at physics (though physics is way more fun) so I'll probably end up with a significantly higher general gpa than a physics gpa. This is different than the trend I saw...will grad schools look at it negatively?
