### Will good math grades somewhat makeup for bad physics grades

Posted:

**Tue May 24, 2011 9:15 am**Obviously physics grades are more important but if you're going into theory would good math grades help? I know gpa is only part of the picture but as my research experience won't be very extensive I don't want 2 huge blots on my application.
