Admission Canada

  • 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.

Also, it is very important (in Canada) to talk to a professor or two at the university you are applying to BEFORE you apply. Graduate admissions are a little different in Canada than the States, who you know and who knows you is very important.

as dmahler said, in CA its also probable that a professor admit you than admission committee.
