I'm having a tough time beginning my statement of purpose for graduate school. I'm just not necessarily sure if what I want to put in will hurt my chances. I started off as a Mathematics major, and after taking Physics my junior year, I decided to add a Physics major. This would require me to stay 5 years total, graduating in May 14'. At the end of my junior year my GPA was a 2.98 overall, and probably 2.8 in Math courses. Over the following year (2 semesters), I took 1 math, 1 engineering, and 8 physics courses. I earned 9 A's, and one A- (in a graduate level math course). This semester, I should produce the same results, bringing my over GPA to 3.39 overall, Physics GPA: 3.8 So, what I'm asking then, is if it is wise to describe in my PS about how after I added my Physics major, my grade were substantially better? Or is this unnecessary?
