Pass or Fail a Gen-Ed Class? Will it hurt me?

  1. Mar 26, 2009 #1
    I'm a senior engineering major. I'm currently taking my general education requirements, particularly a theater class at the 200 level.

    Is it bad if I do a pass/fail grade instead of an actual letter grade? Would the graduate committee (for whichever school I apply to) even notice/care? I have a solid overall and major GPA (>3.5), with some good rec letters, lots of clubs+activities, and many internships (4 internships).

    I'm surprised your institution will let you take a gen-ed credit (to fulfill gen-ed requirements) as a pass/fail course, so you'll want to look into that more thoroughly, but I don't think graduate committees will care in the admissions process.
