Most suited US university for PhD in Theoretical High Energy Physics?

  1. Jul 30, 2013 #1
    My plan is to apply for PhD in the US, and my research interest is in theoretical high energy physics. I'm not interested in computation and want to do formal theory, something to do with Srting/GTR/Cosmology. I have gotten my MSc (2-yr) from IIT Kanpur with CPI 7.6/10.0. I'm going to be taking subject GRE this year, and clear the cut-offs everywhere with the general GRE and TOEFL scores. I have no publications, and am currently working as a project assistant in IISc, Bangalore. The topic of the project is consistent with my research interest. My MSc thesis project was mainly on data analysis of Type Ia supernova light curves. Now I'm wondering what range (according to rank) of universities I should apply to. I'll be applying to at most 7-8 places. Also, if there is any information regarding which universities accept a comparatively larger number of international students, or any students in general, please let me know where to find that information. I will need full financial assistance.
