What caliber of school could I get into? In order to get a better idea of the caliber of student I am I will give you the important stuff. I am a dual physics and mathematics (focus in mathematics on mainly analysis and algebra) and I currently attend SUNY Albany. My cumulative average is 3.12, and then 3.27 for my physics major and 3.45 for my mathematics major. Also to take into account my first 2 semesters I achieved a gpa of 2.0 and 3.0 so since then its basically been all A’s and B’s. Over this last summer I interned at College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at the State University of New York, I researched basically computer simulations of fluid flow dynamics in carbon nanotubes. This research I am continuing on through this year as an independent study/research which hopeful will end in a publication of some sort should be, I have been getting some good data. Additionally I have been doing research for a professor here in the physics department involving the modeling of the expansion of planetary nebula. Still in the working the bugs out of the program but I expect to be getting some good data be mid next month. Lastly I am currently signed up to take the Physics GRE November, 3 but I have a feeling that it will not be stellar since most of my courses here did not focus on memorization of physics formulas rather they tended to focus on derivation of them and utilizing them. So I am not sure that I will be able to cram all of them into my head in the next month but I sure will try. Then most likely at the end of November I will take the normal GRE. I would like to get a PhD in either Physics or Applied Mathematics, basically I would just like to know what sort of places I should be looking at since I have not had a stellar undergrad but also I fell I have done quite a bit. Also it is my understanding that in these two fields you tend to get funding, although it’s unclear to what extent so if someone could give me an idea of that it would be greatly appreciated.
