Hello, I am going to begin my senior year soon as a physics/mathematics double major, and I will be applying to graduate schools later this fall. I am unsure how I rank in the field, and would like to know how people think of my status. Major GPA (physics): 3.52 Major GPA (math): 3.80 Overall GPA: 3.71 I have been a teaching assistant for eight classes (Calc I three times, Linear Algebra two times, a low level physics, an upper level thermal physics course, and a philosophy course), and I have volunteered at science events for little kids seven times. I am very research active--I have recently completed a math thesis (in theoretical physics) which has been published at my university, and will be submitting two new publications later this summer. I have contributed/presented at physics conferences on several separate different occasions, including an APS meeting. Currently, I am engaged in research at a major university in New England, and will be conducting research with a European professor soon, as well as conducting a physics thesis this coming academic year. My main question is this: how do I stack up, in the long run, when applying to grad schools? My top choices are Boston University, University of Maryland, and SUNY Stony Brook. I have conducted research at Boston University, and some faculty there know my quite well. Would this help me get into this school? Thank you in advance.
