Upper level "Core" courses most important for grad school?

  1. Jul 17, 2015 #1
    Core being Thermal, Mechanics, E&M, Quantum? Say I graduate with a average 3.4 gap, but ace these courses, would Grad admissions care about a rough first year including Cs in Calc I and II and Bs in General Physics?

    You are unlikely to get into MIT, but there are some top 100 schools that will have you.

    Your Physics GRE, letters of recommendation, and research matter a lot also.
