<p>Thanks for looking at this. I need some advice on my chances of admission, and I am far from a traditional student. I went to college for a year after high school, joined the Navy, and went to college for one more semester while in the Navy. My service will be up in time for the upcoming Fall semester. My info is below.</p>

<p>So, what are my chances transfer to these colleges:
Penn State University Park
<p>I know it's a long list, but I think that most of these colleges will be out of my reach. If anyone knows of any other schools that have good physics programs that I might have a good shot of getting into, please let me know.</p>
