UW - Madison: Roll Call

  • 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.

UW - Madison: Roll Call

Postby AO » Tue Feb 09, 2010 1:20 am

Hey Guys and Gal's,

For those of you who have already been accepted to UW...

Where does UW rank among the schools you applied to?

Are you planning on attending one of the two visit weekends? If so which one?

Have any of you procured any insight into what kind of living situation is suitable for new grads?

For those of you already attending UW...

Do you have any advice for incoming grad students (housing, funding, research advisors, etc.)?

Are you happy with your current school choice? Why?

I know some of this can be found in the archives, but a lot of it hasn't been discussed in about a year. A preemptive thanks to all contributors! Also, please feel free to add more questions.

-J

I will probably be visiting in the last weekend in March as well.
UW-Madison is one of my top choices.

Still waiting for the financial offer...

I'd checked those earlier but was hoping some of the current students at madison could shed a little light on the situation there.

I will be attending the first weekend.
