I am a senior looking to apply to grad school for applied physics. I am not sure where to set my expectations. If you have a reasonable guess at where my following credentials could land me, I would be greatly appreciative.
GPA in physics~ 3.7
GPA overall ~3.7
1. at Fermilab doing HEP Experimental
2. at NASA doing Materials Characterization
Work at School
1. I've been working on a high energy analysis at my school and there is a very good chance of a publication in the coming months. I have some modest C++ skills and experience with MATLAB and Mathematica.
xx writing (not yet arrived)
I am an American citizen and I am the president of the club soccer team at my school. My interests lie in advanced optics, materials, and model making. I have an inventive mind.
Any ideas how good of a school I can get into assuming that everything else is reasonable? Thank you anyone for your responses!
