Just curious, what do physicists usually take on top of the regular course work? Myself, being enrolled in chemical physics have the following time table this year: Organic Chemistry I & II Advanced Calculus w/ Vector Analysis Waves and Oscillations, then Electrodynamics Physical Chemistry (aka Thermodynamics then Quantum Chemistry) Abstract Math then Linear Algebra II ... So I know most physics do the 2 maths and 2 physics, but what electives do you usually do? I was thinking of taking a bird course next year... cuz this is pretty hard. Do grad schools care that u take 1-2 bird courses per yr?
