### Will a three year degree put me at a disadvantage?

Posted:

**Wed Sep 10, 2014 6:21 pm**So I am going to a big state school in the US ranked ~ top 50 for physics. I am going to graduate in three years to save money/time and was wondering could this put me at any disadvantage. Not necessarily because of the opportunities I miss out on like more research and upper level course but the fact that I have done a four year degree in three.

Here are my stats:

gpa: 3.7

GRE: V(54%), Q(70%), W(80%)

PGRE: ~600's from practice exams (I suck at multiple choice exams under pressure)

Research: 1.5 years at the moment with same professor doing work on neutrino physics

Graduate class: GR, Nonlinear Differential equations, Partial Differential Equations, Solid State Physics

Also I intend to apply to astro-particle physics programs which is what it is I have been involved in which I hope will help when I apply.

Thank you for any input or experience.
