  1. I am a engineering graduate who wants to apply for a masters in condensed matter physics. I have written a first draft of my SOP. I need some guidance regarding it. It would be great if someone can help me out regarding it. I can DM you if you are interested. Thanks in advance!
  2. Anyone waiting for the admission results of the Physics and Astronomy programs of the University of Calgary? Are you already admitted or rejected? I don't want to bother my prospective professor or the administrative coordinator (Ms. Evans) by emailing them. I would appreciate it if we can share our information about this program.
  3. This is my first post. I am an Italian undergraduate physics student. I have just been admitted to Oxford MMAthPhys (Master Mathematical and Theoretical Physics) and ETH Zurich for a MSc in Physics. I am struggling to weight the two options: my main concern is about the PhD. I fear that a 1-year master could be a problem in finding a PhD afterwards: applications for the UK and US have a deadline fixed at 6 Dec and I don't know whether applying so early could be a problem for me. I would be very disappointed in the case I fail in finding a PhD position.Do you think a 1-year master at Oxford cou
  4. I recently received admits from the University of British Columbia for a Master's in Physics, and from ETH Zurich for a Masters in Quantum Engineering. I am really happy with my options, but there are differences between them which have made this choice a tough one: At UBC, I'll be fully funded, and have also secured an additional scholarship that would entail more funding and an internship at a Canadian company working in quantum computing (QC). From what I have read online, the job prospects in physics in particular(industry or otherwise) are much better in North America than in Europe.
  5. Hi all, so I got my first rejection letter today, woo! :') I applied to the physics PhD program at University of Minnesota. I felt I was a pretty strong applicant for the particular subfield I'm going in to, my statement of purpose was very strong, and I had good LORs. My grades/GPA are not the best, but I got an interview, which I took as a pretty good sign. I was really hoping to get in there. The rejection letter gave a very generic explanation, so I'm just very curious to know what specifically led them to reject me. So I have two questions: 1) Is it appropriate to respond and
  6. I am applied to UIUC, UMich, UColorado and Rice (best ranked among the universities I applied to) for Condensed Matter Theory (for a Ph.D in Physics). My GRE score is Q163, V163. I am an international student with a 3.91 WES evaluated undergrad GP. I don't have publications but a decent research experience. I recently found out that these schools were much competitive than I had projected, my chances have begun to look dim especially because of my poor Quant score. Do I have a decent shot?
  7. Hi everyone! I'm thinking about applying for the DAAD scholarship this year (deadline is very soon) and, therefore, I need to choose 3 master programmes before I apply. I'm now at the nuclear department in my Uni and I want to specialize in theoretical physics in my master course. The reason is, since my scientific work is about extending Standard Model to describe massive neutrinos (rougly gauge models), I feel that I don't have necessary deep knowledge in QFT and other theoretical fields. I don't want to be so shallow in my scientific work Can someone please recommend the bes
  8. I was interviewed by the professor I had contact with on last Tuesday and no further information since then. I am wondering if the admission is already done. Will the opinions from PIs matter?
  9. Hello everyone, Here is my SOP for Physics PhD. programs. Please take a look and give me some feedback. Also, recommendations and suggestions for my target grad schools would be really helpful. Some details about me: GRE general: 153 V, 157 Q, AWA: 4; TOEFL: 98/120; GPA : 3.7/4; GRE physics: results yet to be declared. I plan to specialize in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics, particularly in Topological Insulators. I would like to appreciate for your help, in advance. Thank you very much !! I had an influencing fascination towards science right
  10. Hello everyone. I have been accepted to two really great physics schools for my Ph.D. - MIT and Princeton. However, the admission to MIT is through the EECS department’s applied physics route while Princeton is just traditional physics (I also applied to MIT’s physics program but have not heard back from them. Considering all the acceptances that were sent out on Friday, I will assume that I have been rejected). My area of focus at the current moment is experimental condensed matter (CME) and quantum computing (QC). In this respect, MIT is stronger, but I am anxious about how the dec
  11. I am interested in pursuing my Doctoral studies in X-ray Astronomy. I was introduced to this field in the first semester of my M.Sc. programme, when I was looking for a subject of study for my thesis project. I started reading in detail about the field of study and some major science missions launched since the very first discovery of extraterrestrial X-rays. During the same time I familiarised myself with the methods of studying X-ray sources and the tools and techniques as explained by NASA’s HEASARC.I read on review papers and worked on my analysis skills by attempting to reproduce th
  12. Hey! Prospective physics applicant. Looking to apply to MIT Converge this fall to visit MIT. Has anybody done the program? If so, how was it?
  13. I'm about to enroll in a University of Phoenix online "Fundamentals of Physics" course. Does anyone have experience with this class (quality of teaching or difficulty?) or any other prerequisites with University of Phoenix? I've seen plenty negative reviews on Univ. of Phoenix, but since I'm just doing a single course, I'm hoping it won't be too bad. The math placement exam was HARD for me! Is the difficulty of that test indicative of the difficulty of the course?? Thanks!
  14. Hi, i am an international student in UCB double majoring in math and physics. I just took my first general GRE test with a verbal:159, and quantitative: 169 and wonder how competitive this score is for a grad school application, either a phd in physics or a master program in math? In other words, do I need to take the test again to boost my verbal score? Thanks!!!!
  15. I'm doing my Masters at GRAPPA, University of Amsterdam. I'm soon going to start doing my thesis on Gravitational Waves (computational relativity) and I wanted to get a headstart on PhD applications. I'm open to options both in Europe and USA. What should my realistic target universities be? And do I have to write GRE/Subject GRE when applying to the US for a PhD program?
  16. I got into both Universities(fully funded PhD) , wish to specialise in Nuclear Physics. Pros and Cons please?
  17. I want to give a GRE Physics exam in september. Considering that I have not begun my GRE Physics prep, please suggest the materials/books for GRE Physics. I tried looking online and I could not find any relevant books. Thank you
  18. Hey! I am an international student and cannot go for the open day. So, I thought that we start a thread for people who are going to or thinking to join the physics department at UCSD. I haven't firmly decided yet but I am accepted for hep-th. Which field did you apply for?
  19. Hi all, Well I got into UCSB in Physics and I am really excited, I wanted to see if anyone else is feeling the same thing. So is anyone else here going to UCSB this fall for Physics? Excited? Any idea where you are going to live in Santa Barbara?
  20. Hey everyone. I recently graduated this semester. My plan is to work for two years in order to save up money for a masters program. Right now I have my sight set on the masters program at University of Houston in ME/Aerospace Engineering. However, I am in a bit of a predicament. I graduated with a BS in physics from the University of Texas at Austin. My GPA was low. I got a 2.94 gpa on 63 credit hours. I only had 63 credit hours since I transferred from the University of Texas at San Antonio. My GPA there was a 3.78 on almost 80 hours. However, when you combine the GPAs, it comes out to 3.42.
  21. I am planning on pursuing a PhD in astronomy (extragalactic/cosmology). I hear conflicting advice on contacting potential PhD advisors, but I figured I'd try to be a little proactive even if it might not be too helpful in my application process. What's the best way in contacting professors - especially in the sciences? To those who have had successful correspondence, how did you go about this? What kind of questions did you ask? Did you find it helpful? Forgive me for asking the dumb questions...I'd rather sound dumb here than in the email or the application! haha I'd appreciate any in
  22. Hi, everybody. To be honest, I come from a rural community and don´t have the money to apply to several graduate programs. That is why I want help so I can narrow my choices and avoid spending money on application fees for universities I don´t even have a decent chance to get accepted at (I don´t know how my profile compares to average international students). Here is my profile: Major: Two at UNAM in México. One in Physics and other in Mathematics GPA: both 9.5/10 Research experience: Several posters, seminar talks and worked as associated student at various institutes TOE
  23. Hello all, this is my first time on the forum. I went to an unnamed Ivy League school for undergrad and I regret it. While it had many resources and has forced me to become a better self-advocate, the intellectual environment has been boring, intellectually conservative, closed off, defensive, and selfish. It has not been a place that fosters creativity, collaboration, or kindness, nor has it offered good mentorship. It has been, in the words of one of my friends, emotionally vacuous. The physics department makes gestures towards intellectual rigor, but no one seems to have the time or en
  24. I have a concern. I am in final year student of Mechanical Engineering. I wish to apply for Masters program in Physics. I have no prior experience in research in physics. However, I am currently preparing for GRE General and GRE Physics Subject tests. Assuming I get good scores in both the tests, what other things do I need to get admissions in good grad schools? P.S. My long term goal is to get a PhD.
