Which Schools Should I be Looking at ?

Postby ericwithakay » Mon Apr 28, 2014 12:04 am

I have a 3.5 GPA, I'll have two REU's at the time of application, I'm Mexican ( male ) , and I expect a PGRE score of approx 70%.

I plan on stating an interest in Biophysics.

Can someone give me examples of (reach) schools where my application would still be competitive ?

Are you a US citizen? If so, you could probably have a decent shot at top 20 programs. I'm not sure which schools have good biophysics, but I would be looking at the level of places like Washington, Wisconsin, UT Austin, maybe Michigan. If you want a serious reach you could throw in a place or two like Berkeley or Chicago. But things like how connected your letter writers are become important when getting into reaches, and obviously we can't know what the situation is for you.
