All these days, I have been getting very tensed seeing this hugh posts for acceptance for domestic applicants. Its looks like time stands still. When will international acceptances start pouring out? I am even more worried as I don't have stellar profile like other applicants have. Here is my brief profile:
Type of applicant: international(Indian)
Qualification: MSc in physics, 2008( 4 years gap is worry for me)
Specialization: particle physics
Length of degree: 3+2=5 years
Experience: attended two schools on Cosmology and Theoretical HEP, six months MSc dissertation work on Solar Neutrino Problem. Worked as physics teacher in a senior secondary school for 6 months, worked as an officer in charge of statistical data analysis for a federal education problem in India and presently working as physics tutor in a private educational institute.
GRE : V-143, Q-150
Applying to: Florida State University
Alabama university, Tuscalloosa
University of Mississippi
University of South Carolina
Northern Illinois University
Is my prospect of getting into this universities very grim? Do I stand any chance here? I am very nervous as my profile is very mediocre when compared to other candidates. It will be nice if all international applicants too share their views and profiles while waiting for our acceptance and application outcome. Otherwise this long waiting may fry our brains.
