I'm sure this has been posted by, like, a gazillion other people, but I'd also like an evaluation. Goal: Physics PhD (the PhD is primarily for my own personal benefit...I know that I could work with just a Masters, but I really, really, really want my PhD). Overall undergrad GPA: just a nano over 3.5 (nontraditional student--first bachelor's degree was a completely useless liberal arts degree--entering physics who hadn't done a single math or science problem in over 6 years before starting my physics studies...I started off behind, but caught up towards the end...my upper division physics GPA was over 3.8) Physics GRE: 740 :( Should I retake the physics GRE this fall? I heard someone recommend at least a 780. *** Goal-wise, as much as I would enjoy being a professor, I'm more than happy to work in industry (especially medicine) or government. My husband is currently a post doc at a really good school (like, #2 in its field). He's just awesome at what he does--he's even PI on a one million dollar NSF grant!--but even he's struggling to find tenure-track jobs (it doesn't help that he's a white male). Personally, I don't care to go through everything he's going through to try and land an academic job; I'd rather take my degree and find a nice, steady job that pays me decently from day one (though I'm rather clueless as to what jobs those would be...there was ZERO mention of non-academic employment opportunities during my undergrad years). Advice, folks?
