To be concise

-My undergraduate majors are math and physics

-I want to go on and do research in physics (probably theoretical/mathematical physics) and be a professor.

-My GPA is a 3.98 and Real Analysis and Abstract Algebra will likely drag down my GPA (I'm currently in these classes)

-I asked a professor if I could do research with him and he said yes.

-He said he had no use for analysis and algebra and asked me to start learning MAPLE/DiffGeometry/tensors/GR.

So the question "Will I get into a better graduate school if I just major in physics and devote myself to research and learning only the math I'll need, or if I dual major?"

Thanks for your advice. I think this should apply to many undergraduates out there.
