2019 Applicant Profiles and Admission Results

  • 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.

Research Experience:
All at my school.
2nd Year Summer Lab Intern (12 weeks): Laser cooling and molecule trapping; mostly hands-on lab work building a novel kind of molecular beam decelerator for feeding into the trap; learned plenty of practical stuff like vacuum kits, lasers, cleaning and 3D modelling; overall enjoyable but of course no publication or anything since it's pure manual work.
3rd Year Summer Lab Intern (10 weeks): Pulsed-Power Plasma experiments; again lab works only; very fun to learn about all the stuff like Marx banks and laser diagnostics and all the other tailor-made experimental set up, really cool lab; again no publication or anything tho.
Master Thesis Project (about 6 months but not full time): Perovskite material for solar cell applications; bit too much chemistry and not enough physics for my liking; limited scope; potential publication as results may be incorporated into a PhD student's work.

Some Thoughts:
Haven't seen many posts that show similar experience to mine so I thought I would write a few words.
First of all it's not easy to assemble a decent application from a UK undergraduate degree, mainly due to lack of proper research experience. The system supports summer research but anything long term like REU in US is not encouraged. There are more physics modules and lectures instead. As a result, good recommendation letters are hard to come by. Also, publications are extremely rare among my peers. Those with publications have to show exceptional initiatives I think.
Masters in UK are one year only, so that constrains the time frame quite a bit compared to longer master degrees from say Europe or China.
Based on the results which are half expected, I would say just liking physics throughout undergrad degree and research is hardly enough. An early on commitment seems crucial. I am not a physics nerd since young, but rather grew to like physics gradually while keeping a wide range of interests. In hindsight this definitely makes the path to postgrad physics difficult, but I don't really regret it. That's just how I evolve as a person. So I would say don't get discouraged if you are like me.
I don't think GRE scores matter much as I have friends with perfect PGre scores and excellent course grades that got rejected by all.
Finally I will just mention that being a Chinese national these days may have made it a tiny bit more difficult? Like I am having VISA troubles even with offer letters. As a result I am deferring till next year just in case. I heard horror stories of how Chinese PhD students got stuck half way through their degrees when their VISA renewal application got reviewed and took couple months to more than a year. Hope someone can tell me how bad it really is currently.

Semi-victory post. Heard back from the biggest schools now, so I don't feel like I'll jinx myself. :)

Undergrad Institution: Big State, Top 20 in Physics/Astro
Major(s): Physics
Minor(s): Lots of classes in Geology 8)
GPA in Major: 2.9ish last two years
Overall GPA: 3.2
Length of Degree: 5
Position in Class: Struggled
Type of Student: DWF, older now that I've taken a break

GRE Scores :
Q: 155
V: 161
W: 4
P: 490 :shock: :lol: Probably could've retaken and jumped into 600's, but $$$ and I also didn't apply to all programs that required the PGRE.


Research Experience:
1.5 last years at school on linear device with spectroscopy. No pubs. Presented poster and got highest undergraduate research honor.

Summer REU building circuit for radar sensing system. Very rewarding, highly recommend (at KU). One co-author.

2 years at national lab (out of 4 I've taken off). First internship on semi-HEDP (plasma jets, woot woot). Second on a nuclear diagnostic for ICF implosions. One co-author; one potential co-author in manuscript. Presented poster at APS which was well-received. Gave a talk on the research, too.

Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Prize mentioned above. REU.

Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Hung out with the astro and SPS kids a lot, and was an officer for my last two years with Women in Physical Sciences. Started first-ever Physical Sciences Poster Fair at our school (the normal one is dominated by biologists and some engineers). Proudest moment was when I helped raise on the order of 10k's in $ to win a proposal to hold CUWiP at our school. :D

Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: Mostly focused on research and science-related activities in my application. Practically had a minor in music, but didn't think they'd care especially given my GPA.

Special Bonus Points: Two well-known recommenders in my field. One strong LOR from current advisor. Couldn't be more grateful.

Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: Worked at a restaurant for two years while not in school. I'm an older student.

Some Thoughts 4/3/2019:

For those of you waiting for response, heres some more speculation to fuel your anxiety. It seems to be a statisically significant trend that schools tend to send admission responses on the first day of the month.

For those of you thinking about applying to a PhD Program. Before you even apply to a school, EMAIL PROFESSORS in the reseach area you are interested in and ask if they has space and funding for new graduate students to work with them. I wish I had done this. Not only will this demonstrate your interest in the program and build a connection with potential advisors early; it will also save you time. I realized after I applied to MSU that all the positions for solar physics research were filled and the professors had no need for new students.
