Perception of Pass/Fail?

Main Question or Discussion Point

I'd like to take quantum mechanics pass fail and I'm curious if this actually has the possibility of looking bad on my transcripts --

I'm an engineer so I don't need to take QM and this semester my course load + everything else going on may be a little too much for me to do well in this course (as well as I could if I actually had enough time).

I would like to take QM pass/fail just so I can learn more about it. I'll probably need to formally take a QM class in grad school, so even if I did take this course for a grade, I would probably need to repeat something very similar to it anyway.

Does it look bad to have a pass/fail course on my transcript like this? I could always just sit in and not enroll, but then I wouldn't really be able to take the exams, hand in homework, etc.

Thanks,
roeb

If you just want to learn it,
you can always just come to the classes.

Then you don't have to worry about pass/fail on your transcript

Why do you think as an engineer you will need QM in grad school?
