If I go math-heavy:

Real analysis

Topology

Graduate Algebra 1

Graduate Quantum Mechanics 1

If I go physics-heavy:

Either Topology or Analysis

Elementary Lab 1

Graduate Quantum Mechanics 1

E&M II

Statistical Mechanics.

Which side should I focus on in your opinions? If I do decide to go math-heavy I probably won't be doing the 3 required lab semesters of the physics BS, and hence I won't have a formal degree in physics although I would have taken classes up til QFT by the time I graduate. How would physics schools view that if I decide to apply to them for theory? Similarly if I decide decide to focus on physics I won't be able to take a lot of math grad classes. How then would that be viewed by the math/mathematical physics graduate schools?
