Hey guys, I am a super-senior in Mathematics, and I am looking at grad schools for Nuclear Engineering. Particularly I would like to attend the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor for a PhD program. I am also looking at GaTech because I live within driving distance of that school. Is there anybody on here who has graduated or done grad work in NE at one of the top 10 or 15 schools in NE? I've got a 3.8 GPA from a local university and I'm going to take Physics 1, 2, , Modern, Chemistry I (finished-A), and a few NucEng undergrad courses to prepare myself. I have heard from a family friend who is a nuclear engineer that there is a growing demand for nuclear engineers because the field is not a very popular one at the moment, coupled with many upcoming retirees. They are building 4 new reactors in my state very soon. I'm not worried about getting a job in the field, but I would prefer to attend a top ranked university in the field for my PhD. My basic question is, what are the statistics looking like for entry NE PhD students at these top schools? Should I apply to UMich or is my record not good enough?
