Where should I apply?

Post by Blizzy » Wed Oct 20, 2010 5:33 pm

Hello everyone,

Firstly I 'd like to say "hi" cause I am new here!

Ok, here is the situation for me. I am an undergrad student in Greece, I study "Environmental sciences" my school is a 4-year school but because here in Greece we have some issues with occupations and these stuff in universities and miss a lot of courses I will probably finish in 5 or 5.5 years. The past 2 summers I worked at the "University of Michigan" as an intern and I will hopefully go the coming summer too (I worked at the environmental engineering - water resources). When I grad I 'd love to go and do my PhD in USA (I am looking ONLY for full scholarship). When I finish I will have a GPA like 7/10 which is B or 3.00 to 7.5/10 which is B+ or 3.3 (you can check it here --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academic_grading_in_Greece) and a bit more for the last 2 years average. One more thing is that I was born in New York so I am a US citizen so, what collages do you believe I could give a try and apply? For U of M which is one of top 20 all over the world it will probably me a little tough for me. Maybe something like University of Colorado or Indiana University?

Thanks in advance,

This website is for students looking to go to graduate school in physics. If you are looking to transition from environmental sciences to a PhD in physics, you should clarify this, but otherwise we can't help you.
