MIT physics application web site down?

  • 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.

MIT physics application web site down?

Postby kyva1929 » Sat Dec 15, 2012 1:26 pm

Is anyone able to access their admission web site? I haven't submitted my application..

https://gradapply.mit.edu/physics/apply ... ics/apply/

Numerous other applications under the domain gradapply.mit.edu are inaccessible to me. I will probably wait until 5pm est before sending their admission office an email about this.

12:34 pm est. Log in page loaded after several minutes of waiting. Attempting to log in.
12:42 pm est. Awfully slow loading. I was surprised to find that I successfully uploaded a 1.2 MB pdf to the application...
2:28 pm est. Application website went back up.

Which gave a wrong conclusion yesterday when I used similar services. I suspect these services only check for responses from the server redirected by the domain without considering actual usability and loading time.
