Main Question or Discussion Point

How much does it count against you if you were to take a few general education classes, stuff the university requires you to take to get a "well rounded" experience on a Pass/Fail basis?

I am considering doing this so I can speed up my degree and focus more on my Physics and Math classes. Good idea? Bad idea? No idea?

Going pass-fail is a great idea for non-technical classes you want to take for fun. I did this all the time in undergraduate.

Just don't fail!

Many colleges and universities forbid or limit taking requirements pass/fail. The intent is to let a student explore areas he/she normally wouldn't, not to allow a student to squeak through general education requirements and focus on his/her major.
