Taking a grad class as a senior

  1. Apr 2, 2013 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I'm trying to decide on classes for my senior year and I am not sure if it is worth it to take a grad class or not. I have completed all but one of the important physics undergrad courses. I will be applying to grad schools next winter

    Here are the option's I have:
    1. Finish my math major, take that one undergrad physics course, minimum credit hours, and study like mad for the pgre.
    2. Do all of 1, but include a grad physics course.

    I could do option 2, but I think I might get burned out and wind up not studying for the pgre. How beneficial is it to your grad school resume if you take and do well in a grad course anyways? I want to finish my math major, just as an added plus in case physics grad school doesn't work out.

    Your PGRE score will matter more than one grad class but its your decision
