A little stressed with applications

Post by thatonedude042 » Tue May 10, 2022 5:27 pm

Hello,

I am a junior in undergrad who wishes to pursue phd graduate programs out there, but I am slightly uncertain of my chances and how high of a school I should look into. My grades in physics aren't the best, mostly A-/B+ and looking at the post here, it seems that that's not really the ideal grades to get into phd programs. I have around 2 years of research so far in physics, since I've only decided to major in physics sophomore year.

I was also wondering if graduate school admissions care about your personal life issues that may have affected your academics, since I've been dealing with a chronic injury for the past few years, which have definitely affected my academic ability in terms of exams (for ex, not being able to sleep the day before an exam due to the pain, etc).

If it helps, at the moment, I am looking into nuclear physics and radiological/medical physics.

Thank you.

It depends, but yes it can help put a strong case for you.
