Dear Friends, I'm an average international student and applied for middle ranking universities only. GPA major = 3.70 GPA overall = 3.52 GRE physics = 730 (64%) I got admission from Uni. of Mississippi and Wayne State university. My research interest is undecided but I like condensed matter. Having milder climate conditions is a gift (but not very important). The rank (recognition) is also important. I don't know much about both. So I would be thankful if one (domestic) can recommend me by considering above points. Thanks.
