Hi all, thank you for reading this post! I am applying to US grad schools this year. Currently I have two PRD publication, one 1st authored, one 2nd authored. I have another publication on some low-level journal. I have also one paper submitted to PRL, 1st authored However I have some bad scores in my transcript. Failed QFT in undergrad (I am ashamed). I did part III Math at Cambridge but only got average-B. I am wondering what level of grad schools should I aim at? My research seems to be good but I am not sure how my bad GPA will affect my chance. Does anyone know similar cases like me? Thanks a lot!
