A question that has probably been asked a thousand times. My GPA for my physics major is currently about a 2.90 and I'm in my junior year. I am also staying in college for an extra year to complete two majors- the physics BS and cognitive science (haven't decided between BS and BA yet). My cognitive science major is a 4.0 right now and my overall is a 3.12.
I would like to go into a Physics grad program, because there is more you can do with physics. I know my GPA is relatively low for admission since some grad schools won't even consider me without a 3.00 at the very least, however I think my CV looks good.
Some things I have listed:
-author of capillary condensation poster presentation for my school
-co-author of capillary condensation poster accepted to the american physical society
-women in STEM accepted to physics society poster session at my school
-survey for women in stem accepted into conference "Gender and Justice in STEM Conference"
-Same survey accepted to "Women in STEM Mini Sumposium"
I also received some grants so I could continue my capillary condensation project during the summer, and I am presenting at the Gordon Research Conference this August.
