My academic history is sorta in the crap (c average) with family, personal, and addiction problems causing most of the problems but now settled I'm coming back to school to finish my BS in physics. Its at a liberal arts college with a pretty small physics department. I'm very interested in pursuing a career in medical physics at a local state college who has a MS in "radiological science and health physics." With a senior year with good grades make up for my C average and some failed courses (which I'm retaking philosophy,applied mathematics,astrophysics all during the same semester that I had to dropped out of)?
I just took the general GRE and got 1030, V:430 Q:600, I know I can do better with a long layoff without math or physics and with a lot better time management I think I can raise my quantitative a decent amount.
GPA: 3.0 (after my senior year right now its a 2.6 with failed classes which I'm making up)
GER: 430/600 (hopefully will go up a decent amount on a retake. I had like 15-20 min left over on my quan part, which I think I coulda used to score much better)
Research: none (2 of my professors I talked said they would be interested in writing a paper with me so maybe during my senior year)
So what are my chances? Suggestions? I don't mind taking a verbal beating =D
