Dartmouth physics

  • 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.

Stat wise, it's not that hard to get in to. That said, it's a small program with research only in certain areas, so other factors might come in to play. Since there aren't many profs, definitely only apply if you know who you want to work with. It may be extra wise to contact them in advance if you're serious.


If you have any specific questions, feel free to PM me or leave them here. (I don't know much about the admissions process, but I know some about the grad students there).

darmouth's physics dept may not be great in size, but is definitely great in quality of research done there.

Does anyone know the profile/stats of admitted students? What's the acceptance rate?
