messed up my undergrad, and my chance of?? i'm about to get my BSEE. my gpa as an undergrad is quite low. i was once lazy and unmotivated, but i became a different student in my 3rd and 4th years, and now i am confident of my ability to be successful in grad school. obviously, there is still a semester left, but i decide not to apply for better schools. anyway, i'm admitted to several M.S programs ranked between 60~100, and if i decide to get PHD (something i really want) how would the schools see my undergrad record? how much do you think two years of graduate work would help? and can i still get into a good PHD program even if i go to less reputable school for my M.S? if i had a chance to start over, i swear i wouldn't repeat the same mistakes.. so, what should i do to accomplish my goal?(PHD) Btw , i am going to study photonics.
