I am a engineering graduate who wants to apply for a masters in condensed matter physics. I have written a first draft of my SOP. I need some guidance regarding it. It would be great if someone can help me out regarding it. I can DM you if you are interested. Thanks in advance!
I am applied to UIUC, UMich, UColorado and Rice (best ranked among the universities I applied to) for Condensed Matter Theory (for a Ph.D in Physics). My GRE score is Q163, V163. I am an international student with a 3.91 WES evaluated undergrad GP. I don't have publications but a decent research experience. I recently found out that these schools were much competitive than I had projected, my chances have begun to look dim especially because of my poor Quant score. Do I have a decent shot?
Hi all, I have been selected in the Physics grad programs at UIUC and Cornell. My field is experimental condensed matter physics. I am having a hard time deciding between the two. UIUC has a big department with lot of potential PI's and is ranked higher, but Cornell is more reputed and has 2 people (big shots) with whom I would like to work with. I have heard the climate is more or less similar. Any help/suggestion will be appreciated! Thank You!
