Not sure of my background to ensure good supervisor..

  • As many already know, studying for the physics GRE and getting accepted into a graduate program is not the final hurdle in your physics career.
  • There are many issues current physics graduate students face such as studying for their qualifier, deciding upon a field of research, choosing an advisor, being an effective teaching assistant, trying to have a social life, navigating department politics, dealing with stress, utilizing financial aid, etc.

Being admitted to a good graduate program is pleasant, but I recently become not very confident in finding a good enough supervisor there. What were your experiences in the first year? What could happen if my undergraduate background cannot support me competitive when being selected by the good groups? :oops:
