Applied physics vs Physics - Difference??

  • 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.

Applied physics vs Physics - Difference??

Postby Sam0312 » Fri Sep 06, 2013 12:52 pm

Though it maybe already discussed, but I still want to ask opinions about what's difference between applying to Applied Physics Department instead of Physics Department?
Basically, if anybody can tell me the differences in acceptance policies and factors that they emphasize on more/less as compared to traditional Physics program? Also any specific advice/information for international student.
