List of Publications

Postby dmahler » Sat Nov 22, 2008 2:42 pm

Hey guys,
I am currently halfway done my CalTech app, and I'm writing up this "list of publicaitons". Problem is: I haven't got any! If, for example, my name went on a poster that was presented at a conference (the poster was submitted and refereed), then does that count as a publication? If not, where else in my application might I mention this?
Also, whats up with the "List of Significant Extracurricular Activities"? What do they want to hear in this section? I can't really think of any extracurricular activities that are relevant to physics...

Simply mention, in the list of publications, exactly what it is. So put the poster up there, and mention that it is a refereed poster. Same thing for unpublished works and the likes. Ultimately, you just want to give them all the information you feel is relevant and relates to publications; they couldn't make a separate section for posters, presentations, etc, so they would want you to put everything here as long as you're honest about what things are.
