configurationspace Posted July 10, 2014 Share Posted July 10, 2014 Hello, I am a recent graduate of a top 20 private institution. I am a graduate of a five year bachelors/masters program. I had tried in the last year of my undergrad to get into phd programs (for signal processing/control theory) yet I was unsuccessful due to a poor application my gpa was 3.25 with no publications. In my masters program, my gpa was a bit higher at a 3.53. I still have no publications to my credit but I have spent a year and managed to produce a research project as part of my masters. I have two questions at this point: 1.) Are there institutions at which I would be considered a competitive applicant? 2.) If I am not planning on applying to graduate school right away for phd programs, what possible steps can I take to improve my application ability to phd programs. A bit more information, the types of programs I would like to apply to would have a focus on the theoretical aspects of control (lyapunov functions/ nonlinear dynamics / optimal control). thanks, -ka Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
