Hi all, I'm a physics and mathematics double major. I entered college thinking I'd love math and physics was more something my family wanted me to consider...right now I am a rising junior, and am absolutely in love with physics. However, I've learned that "mathematics" is very different from the arithmetic I liked doing back in grade school. I am considering dropping my math major, and would like PF's advice. Is there any real advantage to being a math major, from a physics grad school perspective? I think I have heard that the double major makes relatively little impact on admissions... Two other things I'm considering are the facts that there are a lot of humanities courses I am interested, and that the math major is really lowering my gpa. I don't see that changing. Also, I may decide to pursue law one day, because besides physics (which I love) there are certain human rights issues that worry me a lot and absorb much of my brain time. In case I do want to go to law school, the math major probably won't help me too much, but those humanities courses could add the perspective that would let me figure out a path ahead (whether that means law school or some other graduate field or going straight into non-profit work). Considering these things that I've said...what are the real pros of keeping my math major?? There are a few more math courses I want to take, but I think I would be happy with a minor...what do you think PF?
