Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all,

I'm guessing this question has been answered before but I couldnt find it for some reason. Anyway, my interests are in Geodynamics, and I gota 3.08 GPA in physics for my undergrad and Now a 3.8 GPA for my masters in geology. I am wondering if this will offset my undergrad gpa and allow me to apply.

A couple things... I won the award for physics at the honors convocation for my school even though I had a low GPA, citing my creativity in research and desire to expand the field. Also im switching fields.

When I applied for PhD in earth sciences, I didn't do too hot (hence the MSc). I am wondering if I even have a shot at a top 10 school... perhaps it is stupid of me to even ask.
