Grad Quantum?

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

Grad Quantum?

Post by sid_04 » Wed Jan 10, 2007 1:17 pm

I am a physics junior taking graduate classes. This past semester was really heavy on me, and I ended up getting a B+ in graduate quantum mechanics. My other grades are quite good - does this hurt my chances at getting into top-tier schools, particularly in condensed matter experiment or applied physics?

No. The fact that you have the initiative to take graduate-level courses (as a Junior) suggests that you have the ability and determination to succeed in graduate school. Besides, a B+ is not bad at all given the circumstances -- not to mention the fact that many graduate students probably got lower grades. Kudos to you and stop worrying about this because it only helps.

There are no facults for you to take a graduate course.
