NYU Physics PhD 2022

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

NYU Physics PhD 2022

This is strange. Saw 3-4 acceptances on gc in feb, since they're a combined dept, they would be taking atleast 35-40 students unless they decide to pull a JHU. Got no news from them, then saw someone waitlisted last week, then 4-5 rejections on 7th March, couple rejections on 9th march, but I still got nothing, are they really playing knockout with our apps?

Some schools take longer than others. When I applied in 2020, I'd already attended (virtually) open house events and pretty much decided where I was going to go before UCSC finally sent me a rejection. Something else to note is that GradCafe only provides a small sample of those who get accepted. My department typically gets around 500 applicants a year and sends acceptances out to roughly 80-100 (maybe less recently due to some abnormally large yields in the last couple years), but you rarely see more than about ten acceptance posts on GradCafe.

This application is definitely a scam

Only a small portion of people use GC or PGRE. Harvard accepted about 40 people this year and only about 9 acceptances were posted. Not everyone posts so 3-5 acceptance posts probably means at least 30 acceptances.
