McMaster PhD after U.S average Masters?

Post by ali8 » Thu Oct 03, 2013 8:44 pm

Hi,

This is my 2nd year doing a M.Sc in the U.S. in Physics. My school is top 80ish.

I am interested in McMaster because they have faculty doing similar research like the one I am/was doing here (but unfortunately did not have much time to get publications).

GPA: ~3.6. I can have one excellent LOR and two decent ones.
GRE: Q: 163 (87%). TOEFL is ~110/120.
No PGRE for special circumstances.

I am not familiar with Canadian schools and do not know how hard or easy is McMaster.

Any ideas?

Did you contact faculty there, and tell them why you were interested in their research? Maybe then you might have a chance.

I will definitely do this, but I just wanted to know how in general does this school stands say compared to US schools? i.e. is it comparable to top 20? top 50?
