Hello guys, I want to ask about the difficulty of applying to applied physics in M.S., like Harvard, Stanford, Yale, etc.
I'm a student in Physics department in B.S., and I really want to study physics PHD in the future.
However, my GPA and researching experience are not so good, so I think that applying to M.S. degree before PH.D will be easier.
Originally, I planned to applied EE in M.S., and then apply to physics PHD after graduating from M.S., because some schools' EE is easier to apply than physics, like Harvard and Yale. But after all, I am in physics department in B.S., it is more familiar to me.
Is it easier to applied to Harvard、Yale 's applied physics M.S, and then apply to their PHD program years later?
or first applied to Harvard and Yale's EE in M.S., then applied to PHD in physics?
