Hi Everyone! I am a senior student going at a liberal arts college currently majoring in Physics. I am applying to graduate schools in Astronomy this fall semester. I would like to ask what are the odds of getting into the best astronomy programs with the following background: Major GPA: 4.00 Research: I have been doing research NANOGrav (2 years), LIGO at Caltech 1 summer, astronomy research at Caltech 1 summer. Doing a thesis now with NANOGrav. Papers published: 2 papers and in the process of writing 1 other ones Physics GRE: 30 percentile General GRE: 68% CR, 87% Math, still don't know writing Reference Letters: 2 of them are from my faculty mentors in Caltech, and 1 is from my mentor in my institution who works with NANOGrav. Based on your experience, can I get into top astronomy programs, i.e Caltech, Harvard etc?
