Okay, here's my story: I have a 3.1 over-all GPA and a 2.94 GPA for my upper division physics course work. I have a C in one lower division physics class and a D in upper division first semester quantum. Otherwise, my upper division physics grades are B's, B minuses, and three A's.
I could choose to go ahead and graduate this semester or I could choose to retake quantum in the fall and get an actual acceptable grade.
I do not yet know what I want to do with my degree once I get it, but my guess is I will eventually go to graduate school either to pursue more physics or engineering. What I want to know is whether this D, given everything else, is going to make going to grad school (or even getting a job in my field) impossible. If so, then I should definitely stick around another six months and try to correct that mistake. Otherwise, I would really like to be done with the undergrad part of physics.
Can anyone give me any input on this?
