I'm heading into my first semester as a senior physics major, and I'm still deciding how many courses I should take. I started studying for the physics GRE today and I plan on taking it, along with the General GRE, in October. Most of my graduate school applications appear to be due on January first, so I'd probably want to essentially finish them before my finals period. I haven't even decided what type of graduate program I want to apply to yet. I hate the idea of taking an easy courseload this semester because, as a senior, I can get into so many courses that sound amazingly awesome. Thoughts?
