i am new to the forum, and i know most of you probably have stellar gpa, so i need an advice. i had a rough sophomore year, and my second semester soph gpa is pretty bad... but i did awesome in my junior/senior year, and my overall (physics) gpa is around 3.5. i also audited two grad school courses and took 400-level math courses, which i also aced. i have a 950 pgre score. would that make up for my bad semester? i really want to be able to apply to top physics schools. please be a little easy on me, i am new to the forum.
