## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am a sophmore in a physics BS program at University of Minnesota, and I applied for an REU at University of Indiana. What am I looking at for my chances of getting this? It seems like a really good deal as far as doing actual research, shopping around for possible grad schools, etc. Here is some of my relevant info:

Overall GPA: 3.393

Tech GPA: 3.64

I've had all the prereq math, Calc1-4 plus a Sequences, Series, Foundations class as well as an Applied Linear Algebra class which was a fourth year math class that I got an A in. I got a B in physics 2 but otherwise an A in both physics 1 and 3, as well as an A in every other math class I've had except a B in my sequences. I've had a history of physics class on top of it, and by next semester I'll have a fourth year differential equations class under my belt, with hopefully an A.

Should I look at applying other places, or for a math REU possibly? I applied for biophysics and medical physics at Indiana, but I can't really find any info on what they look for or who they accept. I am also looking into doing work for someone in the biophysics, but I've had nothing except intro bio here. Am I in any trouble here? In the words of Dr. Evil, throw me a friggin' bone here!
