Hi,

I will be applying to graduate school about a year from now and am planning on studying experimental/theoretical quantum information (and/or quantum optics). Since quantum information is a relatively new field I am having a hard time finding advice on how to prepare.

I have taken all the required physics courses at my university, and now with my remaining year, I am trying to decide if I should take graduate physics courses (quantum, classical, stat. therm., etc.), or take more math courses (earning a double major) and/or computer science courses. I am also wondering how an admission committee for a physics graduate program would consider my application for these various options, i.e., would they look more favorably on more physics or math/csci courses? It may also help to know that my physics gpa is hovering around a 3.0.

Any advice you can give will be greatly appreciated.
