2011 Open House Information

  • 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.

Hey Grae,

I really don't mean to be snarky or mean, but the University of Illinois is at Urbana-Champaign, not Urbana-Image :)

so.......how does one get from pton to harv open houses? they do realize no one will be choosing harvard over princeton now, right? Travelling for 5-6 hours late at night/early morning isn't exactly the best way to get you into a good mood

You should speak with the admissions secretary about that, as I'm sure they have a number of students coming from Princeton and could offer you some suggestions.

The e-mail I have from UCSD says their open house is April 5th and 6th, not 4th and 5th.
