Programs Am I eligible for PhD?

  1. Nov 13, 2011 #1
    I am currently 2nd EE, telecommunications.

    I am medium student. But given the fact that my college demands are high, I am doing well.

    I can say for myself that I understand a lot things. I have trouble with calculations, but I am very fast learner. Here at my college, few courses don't have a top notch professor. So I have troubles with that course. I pass it but not with flying marks.

    What are the requirements to get a PhD? Here in my college, you have to have over 8.0 (out of 10) average course score. My current one is 7.44.

    I have high interests in physics and signals(so far).

    I don't want to be annoying here... but why would you be able to handle a PhD? The minimum GPA requirement is there for a reason. It's there because grad school is very difficult. Even people with a perfect score struggle.

    I don't want to discourage you, but think very hard and very long about this. If you're not 100% motivated, then don't start. Find out what went wrong in your undergrad, and try to fix it.
