PhD Interview US

  • 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.

PhD Interview US

Post by Salamino » Sat Jun 03, 2017 10:50 pm

How is a typical interview for a PhD by a US professor? I want to apply for cosmology in places like MIT, Berkley, Standford....

Most physics graduate programs will accept or reject based on the "paper" application. Interviews are not a normal component of the application process but some programs do use them. There are a few past threads about interviews that might be helpful. Some applicants in the profile threads documented which programs gave them interviews. The programs you mentioned are not among the ones that give interviews to my knowledge.
