Are universities closed

  • 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.

Are universities closed

Postby xudis149 » Sat Dec 20, 2008 9:05 am

Are couriers sent during Christmas time accepted only after the holidays?

Are universities very strict regarding Dec 31st deadline? Is it ok if transcripts and GRE scores reach late by a week or two? [I am especially worried about Rutgers, if anybody knows please clarify?]

Hey sidharth! (You're the same sidharth from Physics Forums right?)

I have heard that if your letters, tests scores, or transcripts get there a little bit late that is not a big problem. The deadline mostly applies to stuff you directly control, such as the online application. I could be wrong, and it may depend on the school, but I wouldn't worry about it too much, especially if they are post marked before the deadline.

No problem.

I guess I was thinking of a different sidharth. :)
