Save core classes for final year?

  1. Apr 30, 2013 #1
    Good afternoon. I have thus far taken for my math major: Linear Algebra (with proofs), Complex Analysis for Applications, Linear/Nonlinear systems of ODE, Applied Combinatorics, and Foundations of Geometry. Next year will be my 3rd year of study. However, I've yet to complete the year long sequences in real analysis and algebra required for the major. I ultimately wish to apply to graduate school for PDEs. My question is, would it be better to take the algebra/analysis sequences next year so grad schools can see the grades for the core classes, or take the analysis sequence next year with some more of my electives (ODEs, PDEs, Differential geometry) and save the algebra sequence for senior year with the rest of my electives. I'm not worried about difficulty of taking algebra/analysis at the same time, I'm just wondering what classes would look better to graduate schools. Would they want the grades of analysi/algebra before applying, or would they like to see that I'm capable of doing ODEs/PDEs/DG when applying? Thank you and have a nice day
