This is the one occupation that I'm sure I would love, but the more I read on it, the more impossible it seems that I will land a tenured university position. I'm a 1st year student at Michigan State and have a 3.9 at the moment. I imagine I'll end up in the 3.75+ area after my physics undergrad is complete. What kind of grad school can I expect to get into? A top 10? 25?
