Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I was wondering if, when applying for graduate school, much emphasis is placed on grades from lower division courses (from what I heard the emphasis is on the last two years of undergrad). The reason is that I didn't do so well in two such courses (neither are physics courses and one is not required for my major; got a C in both). I'm weighing the pros and cons of retaking them, as I have an opportunity to do so this summer. Among other things, I was wondering if it's looked down upon, so to speak, if a course is taken more than once.

Thanks for your time.

(I thought I saw a similar thread recently but I can't seem to find it)

In my opinion, if you are going to apply to graduate school in Physics then it does not really matter that you got bad grades in other classes ( except maybe math?).
