Hello, I am going into my senior year and am wondering if I can get into grad school... I know Im not getting into a top 10 school, I would like to go somewhere like U. of Colorado. I have a 3.6 GPA, and from pretests I expect to get between 650-750 on the GRE. However, I have not been able to do any undergraduate research. I have tried like hell, applied to 10 REUs and asked all the physics professors, but I got nothing. (I will be asking around the engineering dept. next semester, but I dont think anything will come of it) I get varying opinions on how important under grad research is from professors I ask, so I want to know what is Physics Forums' opinion on how necessary it is? Thx!
