Applying to Stanford?
Posted: Tue Nov 06, 2007 12:23 am
I would like some advice about whether I should apply to grad school this fall (as in right now) or take a year off and work on getting research experience and a better GRE score. The situation is I'm a female Physics and German double major at a liberal art school. I have a 3.7 overall GPA and a 3.9 GPA in Physics. I spent my junior year in Germany studying (no science) and I just took both the general and subject GREs. On the general I got a 670 in both verbal and math. I also had a summer internship at SLAC / Stanford. I've been sort of bent on going to grad school at Stanford and I'm not sure if it is worth applying. I didn't have alot of time to prepare for the subject GRE and I got somewhere between a 620 and a 720 by my best guess. Should I apply? Does it hurt my chances to go there in the future if I apply and get rejected now?
