Hi, I could use some help in evaluating my choices for a phd program in physics. Below is my background and I was wondering what you thought of my chances at the schools listed below or if you have any suggestions for other schools. I want to study atomic, molecular, optical physics for my PhD. Do I have enough safety schools and if I don't please give me some suggestions for other safety schools? My stats are: Overall GPA 3.6 Physics GPA 3.3 GRE Scores Quant. 164 Verbal 161 Waiting for physics GRE score. Temple U Worcester Polytech Texas Tech Univ of Central Fl Auburn Colorado School of Mines Kansas State Louisiana State Missouri S & T Lehigh Univ. of Delaware Univ of CA Irvine Do I have a shot at a PhD program - my grades aren't stellar? Thank you for your help.
