I recently had an about face and decided that experimental physics is not for me; I want to apply to math phd programs. I have two summers of research in experimental physics, but both summers were mostly mathematical modeling along with other "working with my hands" type research. I am a double major in math and physics.
Do admissions officers care if my research is not in pure math? Or does it only matter that I have good research (and good recs from it) under my belt?
