OK, would an applied physics masters help in anyway in getting into
a physics phd program? Would it hurt?
Since the physics programs don't really have phd programs and the
applied physics people do and I have a year off, I was wondering if
it would help or hurt when I apply for a physics phd. Or is it better
to wait the year and do research or something else meaningful?
Any opinions? Has anyone else transferred from applied physics to
physics? Are you barred from "non-applied" physics just because you
did applied physics once?
Thanks for any opinions.
