I am in sort of the same position as you, biophysics and computational chemical physics/molecular modelling research with BS in physics.
My plan is to send it to the schools that need it, but absolutely not to the ones that dont...as I think in my case it will be the weakest part of my application.
Where are you applying if you dont mind my asking, I am curious if there are any computational biophysics jems i have overlooked. My list is:
UIUC (although i cant get in)
Stony Brook (they dont require the PGRE)
Michigan (them neither)
Rutgers (cause i left my heart and soul in New Brunswick a few years ago and want to go get them back)
Purdue (cool computational and nano- stuff there)
Michigan State (again, cool research institutes and stuff, and they dont require the PGRE)
and CUNY (the safety, and a bit of a dark horse--they have like 4 people doing the stuff i like and guarantee 5 years of funding...nuthin wrong with that!)
Lastly, are you applying to all biophysics or are you applying to physics and intending to do research in biophysics...i am worried that after finishing a Ph.D the biophysics and computational biology programs of the world just wont look as impressive to future employers as a physics degree would have. Any thoughts on this or should i throw it in another thread?
