dear professor #######：
thank you very much for your kind reply. i am sorry that during the summer vacation i cannot read and reply your email in time.
as stated in my first letter， my desired entrance date is in fall of 2000. and i would like to provide my test scores. my toefl test score is 647 （oct. 1997） with a twe score of 5.0. my gre test score is 2340 （oct. 1996， v770 m800 a770）. my gre subject score is 920 （oct. 1998， physics）. and i will take the tse test in the coming august. and my undergraduate and graduate gpa are both about 3.5 in 4.0， about top 10%-20% in my class.
i wish to make a note that during my undergraduate study i was quite young， and during my graduate study i take many efforts to study the basic courses in physics by myself， which may be the reason my gpas are not in the top 5%. but now i believe that i have been quite familiar in the knowledges of physics， both the courses and the researches. so i hope that my test scores and grades are acceptable to priceton with financial supports.
as to the research， i am very glad to learn the research background you provided in your letter. i am quite familiar with the works of x. blase published in prl and apl. i also know that j-c charlier is a famous specialist in this field. so perhaps i could do theoretical research works in your group. also， i am very glad to know that you have the needed main instruments for carbon nanotubes in your group， so that both theoretical and experimental works can be done.
i am puzzled at the mrs meeting in boston you mentioned in your letter. what is the full-name of mrs？ is it a meeting specialized in nano-systems？ i do research works on carbon nanotubes almost totally by myself， and perhaps are not familiar with such fixed terms. would you please explain the contents of this meeting？ thanks. and you mentioned that your latest publications will come out in next months in prl. would you please send me the page number of this paper in prl， and if possible， the full text of this paper？ the journal prl reaches to china very late， usually several months to half a year after published， and i don’t have the account to find the full-texts of prl on-line.
i am looking forward to receiving your warmhearted reply.
