Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi, I am currently a math major, minoring in software engineering and physics. I am planning on going to graduate school for physics.

I will have the requirements for both a BS in pure math and applied math & scientific computation, so I can pretty much just pick which one I want. My question is, which of the two would look the best for getting into physics grad school, pure or applied? Thanks!

Neither. What you need to do is to take as many physics electives as possible, and to get good grades on them. The exact title of your math degree is irrelevant. It's coursework that matters.
