Final thoughts on this application season?

  • 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.

Final thoughts on this application season?

Postby Kartof123 » Sun Mar 12, 2017 11:40 am

I was thinking we can share our final thoughts (or data if anyone has any) about this application season. Do you think this season had an especially large/qualified applicant pool? For example, Berkeley had a 17% increase in applicants from last year. Is thus school an anomaly or is this a result of more physics undergraduates and a greater push for graduate school attendance? I'm interested to hear others' opinions.
