(translates to an A- average ), one publication, one VERY strong letter or recommendation, and two decent ones. I'm looking for an admit to Harvard's applied physics program... which I have fallen in love with ... or similar programs.... what sort of a univ do u thing i have a shot at. umich and ucsd are pretty cool with me too. the schools im applying to are;

rohan added a topic in Physicsany suggestions for similar programs?I am a EE student, and I basically realized midway through my course that, well.... engineering sucks :oops: . i didnt particularly like the EE programs offered by most universities and while looking for interesting programs in physics, i found one which seems to be tailor made for me, the applied physics program at harvard. I havent yet gone through the prof profiles to see what sort of actual research comes out of harvard, but Im sure its safe to assume I would find at least some groups there which would excite me. So my liking for the program is based solely on what they would actually be teaching me during an MS ( as opposed to what I may do with all that they teach me during my Phd )
the only problem is that an admit to harvard of course, is not easy to get. So, I wanted to know if you guys could help me find a similar alternative program.

Check this page out. Except for the geophysics part of the program, I have harbored a serious interest in EACH AND EVERY ONE of the other topics listed there. PLease let me know if youve come across a program you think I would enjoy based on this page.
