Applying to Astronomy Grad School

Postby JoaquinViggo » Tue May 04, 2021 2:34 am

I'm an undergrad physics major and will be applying to astronomy grad programs this fall. Other than the obvious (grades, PGRE, letters), is there any good advice that I should consider?

As a note, I have a 3.65 GPA from a small school (UT-Dallas). I've been doing research for over two years (~1 year in material science), have done two posters (3rd coming next semester), will be submitting a paper next month, have a research related scholarship, have won 2 research related undergraduate grants through my university, and might be giving a talk at a conference in December. Any thoughts on how I may stack up to candidates at some of the top tier programs?

Any thoughts or advice will be greatly appreciated!

Hi Joaquin - this forum is for K-12 students doing science fair projects, so unfortunately this isn't the right place to ask your questions.
