An 'Inside' Look at Admissions [UC System]

  • 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.

An 'Inside' Look at Admissions [UC System]

*I am especially excited about this statement: "A combination of high GPA and high test score may lead to early review
of an application, but indicators of other exceptional qualities, such as unusually strong work or
research history, are considered in reviews of all applications regardless of scores."
