Good Physics Graduate School Applicant Resource

  • 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.

the website is great! there are ample resources on acceptance rates and admission information of every grad-program, but is it possible to check out detailed background-like GRE score and GPA- of every accepted applicants?

Actually, I believe there is though the data on the scores is sparse. If you click into the details of a program it will show the scores that have been reported.

For example, for Princeton's program (http://www.yuster.com/school/get_program_responses/1587), it looks like the GRE score reported was: Q:800, V: 590, W: 71.
