But why do you think I need a new degree? If I can take analytical and statistical mechanics, general relativity, graduate E&M and QM, maybe even quantum field theory, wouldn't that suffice for an application? I know I can take and clear these classes because I have seen courses on them, and I know quite a bit from all these classes. I have nothing to show for it, but, if I clear such courses, without enrolling in a degree program, won't that be good enough?
I can't even imagine going through another bachelors degree : D

I am however surprised at how many people in this forum graduate with a 4.0/4.0. At least at our institute, when someone gets a 4/4 in a single semester, its big news. Nobody has ever graduated with a 4/4, so I guess we have bad grading system (I know, excuses, excuses, excuses : D)

That converts a GPA of 5.0 at my school to a GPA of 2.9 in the US system. I know this isn't the most elegant way of converting the GPA's but at least it is better than simply scaling it.
maliksaim wrote:I would still say, I think most of you people are being too negative about my GPA. First, its a GPA in mechanical engineering; a field which I am trying to get away from. Secondly, there have been people going from arts and humanities to masters in science subjects; I at least have lots of physics and mathematics under my belt. And third, in case you people are thinking that I am trying for a direct PhD or a masters leading to PhD, that is not true. I am, specifically, looking for a dead end masters right now. Does that change your mind a bit about my chances? : D
