HI everyone, I am currently a senior at a big university who will be finishing up my BS in physics in either Fall of 2018 or Spring of 2019. I would like to go to graduate school after undergrad, but as of this moment there is no way I would get accepted to any school at all. To give you some background, I currently have a 2.2 GPA and no science related extra-circulars. Up to this point I have had some emotional issues that have turned into me switching majors 3 times and having some poor grades stem from that. Now, the good news is I'm not someone with no extra-circulars or the drive to do better. For example, I just took an accelerated calc 4 class and recieved a 3.5 (my school does our grades in increments of .5), and I also am a part of a greek organization that raised $10k worth of filtration straws for the children of Flint Michigan, I played a leadership role in that project. Now to continue from that, I plan on spending my next year to two years doing as well as I possibly can in classes, I realistically believe I can hold a GPA north of a 3.0 over that time period as I have quit my part time job and taken a step back from my greek organization. To add to that I have also spent the past two weeks applying to research jobs at my university in hopes of getting involved in that this fall, I unfortunately have not heard anything positive besides "try back once school starts". Besides the above, I plan to take the general GRE this August and then the Physics GRE next summer. I believe that if I do relatively well on those two tests I can give myself half a chance of getting accepted. Plus, I believe that I am relatively well-rounded as I have been able to prove on several occasions that I can be social, but also can give back through community service (over 800+ recorded hours), some of that time was spent tutoring children in low income areas in math and science. This upcoming year I plan to take Quantum 1, electricity and magnetism 1, thermal physics, an electronics lab, and intro to nuclear physics (capstone requirement). In fall of 2018 I plan on taking stat. mag, linear algebra, then a masters level classical mechanics course. I can graduate after that semester, but I am thinking about spreading it out into that spring semester and adding quantum 2 and another graduate level course. I know the chances of me getting into even a low end masters program out of undergrad is very unlikely, with everything I have said above is there anyone who can help me out in additional skills or resume builders that will help me land a spot at a graduate school? At this point I have plenty of soft skills, but not a lot of hard skills. Feel free to be a little brash, I can handle it. I would rather receive help in a critical way than no help wrapped up in a nice bow, if you get what I mean.
