Iffy second semester of M.S.

  1. May 15, 2010 #1
    Hi all, I was wondering: I just had an ill-executed second semester of my physics grad program. I found out the hard way that I'm bad at thinking mathematically and organized-ly. (?) ... and it cost me a B-. I need to raise my own standards at how I approach physics. But: will PhD programs I someday apply to turn a critical eye to a bad grade from the second semester out of the three that they will see, plus strong letters of recommendation? I am a tad nervous: I do want to get into a PhD program that will let me feed a family someday. They ain't exactly throwing money at theoreticians.
