Hi, I am currently a junior majoring physics/math and I am looking to get into a reasonably good REU for this coming summer. However, my gpa is EXACTLY 3.5 (from NYU-poly), and I have no way of knowing if this is considered high or low on the spectrum. I have applied to CERN and SULI, which are long-shots, as well as some random colleges throughout the US. Besides the GPA, I have taken upwards of 18 credits of physics and math courses since sophomore year every semester, I am getting reasonably good recommendations from my advisor and one professor, and I worked the previous summer in a nuclear lab, doing experiments on various decaying isotopes and analyzing the spectra. Basically, my question is whether or not this is impressive enough to get into a decent REU program for this summer, or if my efforts are best focused elsewhere.
