I have a 3.05 GPA with a strong trend (last two semesters on the deans list). I also have 3 years of research experience, 2 at my school and a summer at a world top 5 institution, but no publications. I really want to work on quantum technology, but I seriously doubt my chances of getting into a PhD research program of credible quality. So, my next thought was that I would apply for a masters program. Unfortunately, I'm dirt poor and $60,000 in debt already, so I can't afford it. I feel like my chances at a scholarship for any masters program are nearly nil. So, I find myself with no path forward. I feel hopeless and lost, like all my time has been wasted. Where do I go from here? How do I go from here?
