My undergraduate degree will be in mathematics and my GPA will be 2.7x when I graduate in May. I only applied to one graduate school and got rejected (only applied to one because its not a top tier school and my living situation is really good for my wife). Not a terrible shocker considering I applied to a physics program and have no physics history except for a non calculus based physics class. I suffered from the laziness a lot of people have at the undergraduate level and didn't try in a lot of my classes except for those that interest me. My ambitious plan is to self teach physics and do good on the physics GRE. I feel this will show my passion for physics and show I'm not lazy when it comes to physics. Its late and just want some tentative answers before I make phone calls tomorrow. Edit: This school doesn't require the physics GRE.
