Help with school selection

Post by lucy » Mon Nov 28, 2011 10:17 am

My stats are:

Overall GPA 3.6
Physics GPA 3.3

GRE Scores Quant. 164
Verbal 161

Waiting for physics GRE score.

My list of possible schools to apply to are listed below. I want to study atomic, molecular, optical physics for my PhD. Do I have enough safety schools and if I don't please give me some suggestions for safety schools.

Temple U
Worcester Polytech
Texas Tech
Univ of Central Fl
Colorado School of Mines
Kansas State
Louisiana State
Missouri S & T
Univ. of Delaware
Univ of CA Irvine

Also do you have any suggestions of other schools I should be thinking about.

Do I have a shot at a PhD program - my grades aren't stellar?

Thank you.

Assuming you don't bomb the PGRE, you should get in somewhere on that list.
