Physics+Math vs. Physics+Biophysics

  1. Aug 8, 2009 #1
    As far as graduate school admission is concerned, I've heard that a second math major may help you succeed in grad school but won't help you get in. What about a second biophysics major? Or at the very least, would it open a new door to the university physics department via biophysics?

    I'm considering switching from a physics/maths double to a physics/biophysics double. I'll still take a lot of math courses, but somehow I'm really not liking my school's math department so far and I have a feeling I might enjoy doing more applied research such as biophysics. It seems like a field I could get interested in. If it had any affect on my admissions chances, I'd like to know that too, before considerably redirecting my efforts.
