Hi everyone, I am a fourth year undergrad in physics. I am strongly considering graduate study in materials science, and I am wondering which course might have more impact both on my future studies and on admissions. The materials course seems like a broad overview of the subject, going over structure, bonding, and related properties. The solid state course is offered by the physics department, and seems like it will follow the text by Kittel closely. Basically, I don't know if I should take an introductory course to materials, or take a more advanced solid state physics course, particularly in light of materials science admissions. Thanks.
