Also, because I feel the need to say this somewhere on these boards: screw you Colorado for requiring four rec letters.
seriously? why would they ever need more than 3 recs. I'm still deciding if i wanna apply there.
Good to see there're some people applying for astro here.
I've been looking at the previous year profiles (way too many times) and wonder the same thing. I cannot find much statistics on astrophysics applications.
Guess i'll have to take my chances and hope my app would be good enough for some programs i wanna get in.
I actually hope PGRE would be considered important for astronomy/astrophysics since my small department does not offer much upper level physics classes. I hope solid PGRE score would help.
This worries me a bit. I took all of the physics courses offered though, except for advance lab. And in additions there are 2 astrophysics and observational astronomy, also independent study on upper level physics.
any of you actually take all the EnM II, Quantum II, optics, or grad-level courses like some physics majors?
