2011 Decisions

  • 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.

It's not that great but I'm glad to be going to graduate school. :)
I visited Lehigh last year. I was convinced the faculty were invested in the students and I really liked that. The campus itself is pretty nice when you forget about the area that surrounds it. Do you know who you want to work with there? I think I talked to about everyone (or so it seemed).

I unfortunately missed that, as I scheduled my flight home for 7:30pm on Saturday because the schedule sent out in the mail didn't mention the party. That happened at UIUC as well, actually. We should add that to whatever customary advice the forum gives out about visits: check to make sure you don't miss a party!

Indeed that was shaping up to be a good party. I'm sad I had to leave early.

You can call me "His Royal Highness".
It reminds me of "The King's Speech" and I really liked that.
