Keeping options open?

  • 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.

Keeping options open?

Postby wavicle » Sun Mar 18, 2012 11:56 am

Already have single acceptance *dodges tomato* so this doesn't belong in the other thread. Haven't heard back at all from two schools: Illinois and Johns Hopkins. It's less than a month till April 15th so I feel it very improbable that I will hear anything at all. I definitely don't "fit the mold" for UIUC so I'm relying on a perhaps unique combination of skills I've acquired. Who else is keeping their options open and who are you waiting on?

I'm still waiting on Penn State, but I think it's probably a rejection.

I'm all for keeping your options open, but remember, there are folks out there still waiting on acceptances. So if you know you don't want to go somewhere where you've been accepted, or have an acceptance for your top choice and are on a wait list else where, make the appropriate withdraws.
