Hey guys - so I've been getting emails from the Dean asking me if I need help to graduate. I have 120 units this semester, I could
graduate next semester if I wanted to.
I wasn't planning on it, because I want to go for a masters in Physics. My undergrad is in Cinema Television Arts, Film Production Option, so I have a lot of undergrad to catch up on.
But with Cal Grant telling me that they've made their last payment to me because of I guess how many units I have, I am unsure how to proceed.
I am trying to set up an appointment with the Graduate studies adviser to see if I can get admitted into the Masters program on a provisional basis - and allow me to take the undergrad classes I need to take (6 semesters worth). I had come up with a schedule of classes talking to the undergraduate physics adviser, so I know that 6 semesters of work is needed before I can apply to the master's program at the university.
So I know i need to talk to the adviser, but I've been kicking around a few ideas:
1) Declare a double major, drop it when I've done the courses I need to do (not enough for double major) and graduate (seems stinky)
2) Graduate, do self study and pass the GRE Physics exam with flying colors.
3) Try to enter graduate school on a provisional basis and do all 5 years paying the higher tuition but hopefully getting financial aid.
