So I know that the last thing I should be doing now is thinking about my applications because there's nothing that can be done, but unfortunately that's all I've been doing. So here's my situation.
For certain schools, they require you to list your top choices of study and while most of my undergrad research was in HEP-th and condensed matter, I put QI first and HEP-th and Condensed matter second and third. Then in my statement of purpose, I mentioned again that these were my areas of interest. However, when I wrote why I wanted to go to (Name of University left out for privacy), I talked more about the research going on in HEP-th. Will this be seen as an inconsistency because I put QI first and then talked more about HEP-th when discussing my compatibility with the university or am I stressing out over nothing?
Thanks for listening!
