I can't believe I did worse
than on the 0177 practice test. I studied my ass of for a week after I took that practice test and my score went down. And I felt so much better after I got out of the actual test. Bewildering.... Frustrating...
oh well, I can't stress over what's already been done.
Maybe time to put some more backup schools on my list?
On the other hand, compared to other women I did pretty well:
Although this data may not be credible because it's from a website whos entire mission in life is to show how stupid women and minorities are compared to the white male.
So what do you guys think?
Physics and chemistry double major (math minor, of course)
600 / 85% Verbal, 780 / 90% Quantitative, 5.0 / 73% Writing, 750 / 68% Physics
3.93 upper division physics gpa
3.97 upper division chemistry gpa
3.75 overall gpa
just over a year of research in applied/CM physics
3 publications, one as first author
If our abstract is accepted, I'll be presenting my research at the Materials Research Society's spring conference.
Should I bother applying to Harvard's and Stanford's Applied Physics programs?
U Washington (Seattle), UCLA, and UC Santa Cruz were my "backup" schools, but now I'm thinking I might be aiming a bit too high.
