How bad is a C in Physics for a math major?

  1. Dec 17, 2010 #1
    Hi guys, I'm a second-year math major planning on grad school. Last year I got nearly perfect grades; my only B was in English. This year I've done much worse, getting two Bs in computer science, a C in physics, and (probably) a B in Chinese language (a class I am just taking for fun -- I don't actually need to). Luckily I'm still getting As in abstract algebra and in real analysis.

    It's not that I can't handle the material... I just had too much fun this semester and skipped too much class. Assuming I can get back on the straight and narrow, how much will this bump in the road hurt my chances?

    I doubt any math prof/adviser/authority figure will care. According to my graduate math friends, the only thing math professors care about is math and comic strips that contain math humor. When it comes to the sciences or applying mathematics, they could care less. i.e. look at the history behind fractals.

    I'm not sure what you mean.
