Visiting Schools

  • 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.

Does anyone know around when grad schools invite us to go see them if we get in?

if you look at the posts from last year (or rather, EARLY this year, since there's still a few days left in 2006), it looks like most people got the bulk of their admissions decisions in February and early March (though the March admissions notices seem to be for the people who got wait-listed for second- and third-round considerations). The open houses will be primarily in March, since most schools will have a decision deadline some time in early- to mid-April. I imagine we'll probably follow a somewhat similar format on this forum as the last graduating class when the end of January rolls around, in that someone will start a thread for everyone to post their latest admissions notices and stats so that others can get a sense as to where they stand and what they can expect in the coming days.
