PF Resident Academics

    PF Resident Academics....

    I'd like to gauge my chances, seeing as there doesn't seem to be a large amount of statistics concerning phD acceptance.
    I was wondering if you guys(or anyone extensively knowledgable on the subject) could give me some insight on the quality of students accepted into phD programs. If I graduated with a GPA of 3.5, with the physics GPA being around 3.4-3.6 from a top 20 LAC with 2-3 research experiences along with extensive programming skills(including a computer science minor). Would I have a good chance to get into a phD program in computational physics? I realize the GRE is not included, but I can't necessarily estimate my possible score. Also I'm not sure if this helps but I'm of Filipino ethnicity. Any information is appreciated. xD

    This website has the applicant profiles for acceptances and rejections to specific schools for the past 5 years.


    Have look at profiles similar to yours and see where people were able to get in.

    Okay that site there seems to be many questions with little answers even searching through the forums, and the 2012 Physics Graduate School acceptance/rejection thread here on PF is only one page...
