Hello all. I am wondering what my chances are of getting into grad school. I realize there are other posts on the topic, but everyone is in a different situation so I think this is warranted. I have what the university calls a combined honors mathematics and physics BSc degree from the University of British Columbia. I am a Canadian student, so going to a Canadian university would be preferable, as the Canadian government subsidizes tuition fees here. Although, I would go anywhere if I can afford it. I have an overall standing of 78% for my university career. I took many high level mathematics courses, which ended up lowering my overall standing. I simply enjoyed the tough math, even though it did lower my average and was hard as hell. However, in all the courses that count (QM,E&M,Solid State,Statistical Mechanics/Thermodynamics) I got A's. I spent my 4th year working on an 'undergraduate thesis'. Which is a small research project you work on with the help of a professor. My project had to do with photo emission spectroscopy on YBCO, which was interesting to say the least. I enjoyed working in the lab, everything from tightening bolts to talking about theory and troubleshooting. Also, during my 4th year I was getting quite burnt out. All those math classes I took ended up stressing me out. So, I decided not to go directly into graduate schooling. Now it is about a year later, and I am feeling the need to do some physics (next fall I guess). It is hard to describe, but there is something missing. I have toyed with being an engineer, but even with the promise of money and many job prospects I still want to work in physics. I have not taken the GRE yet, but I have not decided 100% to go to grad school yet. I am just testing the waters, so to speak. Thanks to anyone that takes the time out of their day read this and formulate a response.
