specific fields in physics

  • 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.

specific fields in physics

Post by whoknows » Tue Dec 12, 2006 10:10 pm

So I'm currently applying to schools, and as of now I've picked the schools I'll be applying to pretty much entirely based on location. One of my friends told me that he looked into some of the schools, and he saw that this particular physics program had a certain area that he was interested in, or he found that one of the schools he was going to apply to wasn't that impressive in the fields of physics my friend was looking for. I know there are rankings of overall physics grad schools available, but how can I find out which schools are good in which areas of physics? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

Actually, on a side note, if I missed the deadline for the November physics GRE, and I took the December 2 test instead, should I be worried that schools with deadlines this Friday (Dec. 15) won't get my subject test scores in time?

us news has the rankings for subfields of physics, it costs money though.

Schools will get your scores in time
