tim_drake_13 Posted February 19, 2014 Share Posted February 19, 2014 (edited) I was recently accepted into the electrical engineering department at Georgia Tech with my tuition paid for, a salary GTA position, and a fellowship. This opportunity is beyond anything I expected. I am getting a degree in Applied Physics with minors in computer science and applied mathematics from a mediocre state college. When I applied, I had: 3.83 GPA GRE scores of 161 quant, 155 verbal, and 4.0 writing research experience with chaotic circuits chemistry research with gas phase ions Oral presentation of Chaotic research Poster presentation at ACS national conference for chem research Potential papers this spring for both pieces of research Relevant courses of E&M 1 and 2, and Analog electronics. Somehow I can't shake the feeling that my resume doesn't warrant this kind of offer and I'm wondering if anyone has any insight into how likely it is that being white and from the United States has significantly helped me get this opportunity in a field that (I think) is dominated by oriental and middle-eastern students and professors I'm not trying to complain about being offered this great position, but rather I want a little peace of mind before I'm too hard on myself.
