Acceptance/good news thread

  • 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.

Acceptance/good news thread

Post by shep23 » Mon Jan 26, 2015 6:57 pm

Following last year's example, post your good news here! We can also use this as a source to see which schools have responded already.

For example, I received my first acceptance and got into Penn State for Astronomy on 1/24!

Anyone else have any good news yet?

Make sure everybody to also post your results at where they have a nice form that makes these things easily searchable.
