How to answer: What other schools are you applying to?

  • 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.

How to answer: What other schools are you applying to?

Why do programs want you to list the other schools that you are applying to? Why does it even matter?

Here's my bad point of view. If they see that you are applying for some other good schools and having a good chance to get in, they might reject you because they know for sure that you would decline their offer.
