- 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.

Can we make the decision on April 15 itself? One of my schools has an open house this weekend and I could use all the time I can get.

Yes (although there might be a question of time zones--I believe it is interpreted as the time when midnight strikes at the school in question). Still it would be VERY courteous to decide a day earlier, to let more offers be made.

Actually, not ALL schools have signed the agreement. I would double check your program on the list at http://www.cgsnet.org

And, according to the agreement, that also only applies if the offer includes funding.

Case in point - the masters program I've gotten accepted to wants me to let them know by May 1st. It all depends if they are on the list mentioned or not
