Hi all, I graduated recently with a bachelor's in physics and I have found myself a (fortunately) steady job with a steady income. However, I've been slowly feeling my soul escaping from my body, and regrets itch out the rest of it for not going to graduate school. I didn't do so well in undergrad, with a cumulative GPA below 3.0, so my odds were slim. However my major GPA was decent, a solid 3.3 , and I had some research under my belt in plasma physics at a pretty top notch institution, but no publications or anything fancy. But I had over 9 dropped courses(Math/Physics alike) over a span of 5 years, so yikes, yeah, 10 straight rejections. I thought about going back sometime in the near future maybe in a year or two, re-taking the courses I got C's and and a single D on, (all in Math!) and maybe trying my luck at the electives and graduate level courses (for fun, really). I think I'll do it regardless of looking good on a transcript or taking a shot at it, money isn't too much of a problem, but would anyone really care enough? I probably look like a horrible, pitiful failure under the eyes of academics, perhaps laughable even, my adviser was never really honest about it. (Maybe I'll backdoor my own institution! Ah, but probably just a tragic fantasy.) I don't mind not getting into the top 50 programs or even 100 really, I just want to have some real, sexy challenge in my life. Thanks!
