Hi guys. I'm just looking for a little help with how "big" of a school I can realistically get into for graduate studies. GPA: 3.5 (for both physics and generals) Physics GRE: 850 Research: At the time of graduation I will of had 1.5 years experience. (I'm not sure exactly of how the accomplishments here are going to be though.) Getting letters of recommendation shouldn't be a problem. I was a tutor for 1 year, and an SI (supplemental instuctor) for another (both for physics). I'm primarily looking for campuses in California. I'm also not sure of what type of field I'd like to research. My primary goal is just getting help with knowing what schools are in reach. It might be useful to note that my GPA in upper division physics is near 4.0. Most of my "poor" grades came from my first few quarters. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to help me out!
