Did GradSchoolShopper get an upgrade?

  • 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.

Did GradSchoolShopper get an upgrade?

Postby HappyQuark » Tue Oct 19, 2010 4:31 pm

I use gradschoolshopper quite a bit but I've really only ever used direct links to their PDF copies of grad program data. Today I ended up on their main page where they now let you search/sort through grad schools by subject, location, degree type, teaching ratio, funding etc and after selecting everything it presents the data in tabbed format rather than just pushing a PDF at you. Am I just losing my mind here or did it in fact get an overhaul?

Haven't been to that website in quite a while; probably last visited 6+ months ago. However, I would say it has DEFINITELY gotten an overhaul.

I noticed that too. I can't imagine any reason AIP wouldn't include it so it must mean Caltech is refusing to provide the information.

Maybe they lost their accreditation.
