Hi Everyone, I've scoured the internet to find answers to this question and I haven't had much luck. I graduated in 2014 with a 2.86 GPA in physics. To counteract this lower gpa in my applications; I have a lot of research experience and I'm currently working in industry doing some research(but mostly production). I am studying for the PGRE with plans to apply in the fall(and my professors agree my test scores will help me the most). Even though I'm still debating between Nuclear and Astrophysics, I'm wondering what your thoughts are on graduate certificates in nuke. Questions: 1. Do you see a graduate certificate in nuclear science & engineering to be beneficial? 2. Would a GC help me stand out from others in MS/PhD applications? 3. Side question: If you couldn't decide between fields, how did you come to a decision?
