Well can't say I didn't predict this one. I posted earlier wondering about my chances for graduate school assuming I'd do poorly on the physics GRE, and having just received my nov. 4th scores I now realize I wasn't exaggerating.
Anyway, I was just wondering what my chances were for a top 10 astronomy school. I have a physics GRE of only 60%. I probably should have taken the test twice but my 21 credit schedule was so busy I just didn't have time to study.
My GPA is a 3.96 and I am an astrophysics and math major. I have a pretty good verbal GRE of 89% and good research experience in astronomy. Yet, I notice there are a lot of physics majors with records far better than mine that are deciding they want to pursue astrophysics. The point is, do top 10 astronomy schools ever accept students like me?
Thanks for the help,
