Do I stand a chance at Medical Physics?

  1. Nov 20, 2008 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I'm just about to graduate from a small private university with a major in Physics. I have been looking into graduate programs in Medical Physics and I am starting to wondering do I stand a chance? Ideally, I would really like to get into UT-H program.

    Overall GPA: 3.73
    Major GPA: 3.95
    B.S. Physics and minor in Math and Business Admin.
    1 course in Biology
    3 courses in Chemistry (intro chem, analytical chem, and physical chem)
    Math and Physics tutor for 2 years
    GRE: Q750/V550

    REU: I did research over the summer at UTHSC at San Antonio using MRI, PET, and TMS to map brain functionality of depressed patients versus normal patients.

    I'm just worried that having only 1 semester of biology is going to hurt me a lot? Anybody have any idea of my chances?

    Any advise would be appreciated,
