Hey guys, I am an undergraduate student and planning to apply for a Ph.D program in Physics. From the previous posts in this forum, all you cares about are top 20 or even top 10. However, what I could possibly think of are some 50 ranking schools. I have been trying to qualify myself in GPA, in standard language proficiency, and everything else. I could not say no effort is spared, but I have really tried. However, all I have achieved after devotions and time, seem so easy for you. I don't know whether this relates to fairness, or just education background variation. What I could figure is that if at this time I could barely catch up with others, years later the gap is to be tremendous. I am not here to complain, nor does it gonna help. Friends, I just hope that you could possibly write some details of your life if you have finished or just begun your Ph.d programs in Physics. I would really appreciate it. I am still applying, although what would happen after all of these is unknown.
