However, if you consider top ten programs, each of them will allow 1 or maximum 2 spots for internationals in HEP theory. You will therefore have to compete for about 15 spots with (likely) upwards of 300 people from around the world. Furthermore, your formal education is from outside of physics, which is usually considered a disadvantage.
It's possible to make up for your lack of formal physics education and indecisive former episode in aerospace with outstanding research and recommendations. However, bear in mind that quite a few of your competitors will have great research and recommendations, in addition to BS and MS in physics.
