Please stop believing this silly number has any importance. Life has its
way of sorting out who does and doesn't succeed in any given field. Your
score on some test of random facts or puzzles isn't very relevant. What
really makes the difference is the decisions you make about how you spend
your time and, ultimately, what interests you to do.
Nanotechnology is a growing field with many opportunities for people
trained in physics, chemistry, biology, and electrical, mechanical and
computer engineering. You don't need to go to a school with a program
in "nanotechnology"; such programs are gimmicks. But whatever school
you go to may offer some courses in nanotechy stuff which would be of
interest. Best to get a solid grounding in one (or more) of the core
disciplines mentioned above, and as a graduate student you can pick a
good research project.
