Good Physics Graduate School Applicant Resource

  • 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.

Hi everyone.

I discovered an excellent resource for graduate school applications.

* List of US Graduate School Physics Programs. ... or_major/6

* Admission Results & Decisions from many different Physics Programs

* Subscribe for alerts on when your program has started to send out admission decisions.

* General Graduate School Admission Resources.

Hope you find these useful!

the website is great! there are ample resources on acceptance rates and admission information of every grad-program, but is it possible to check out detailed background-like GRE score and GPA- of every accepted applicants?

Actually, I believe there is though the data on the scores is sparse. If you click into the details of a program it will show the scores that have been reported.

For example, for Princeton's program (, it looks like the GRE score reported was: Q:800, V: 590, W: 71.
