Are some of you interested in biophysics/ biological physics? What would be the best graduate schools? From the size of their programs, I would say Harvard and Northeastern... and it's so difficult to get a ranking, because it's often coupled with biology or biochemistry...

Hey octavian,

I am a current Biophysics graduate student at Johns Hopkins University. If you want information, send me a PM with questions and I will gladly answer them in some detail.

You should know that as a physics major going into Biophysics at some specific schools you will be at a tremendous disadvantage if you have not taken any biology courses in undergraduate.

Before you send me questions, I'll just make a statement: Some schools focus on the biological aspects (Harvard for sure), and some schools will focus on the physics. Deeply investigate the me :wink:
