I'm a west coast physics MS student who wishes to keep PhD doors open as wide as possible. I'm taking a probability class outside of my major, and I really like it but I've made a few mistakes on quizzes and now I'm not sure I'll pull off the A. It's still doable but life would be less stressful if I could just earn a PASS instead of fighting for an A. However, I've heard that some grad schools consider PASS grades as C's when calculating GPA. Does anyone know a breakdown of which schools don't mind and which do? I've heard that East Coast schools don't like P/NP while west coast schools don't care. How true is that? Any opinions on this in general? Thanks!!!!
