No Will this forum be any different? Time will tell. To explain with a visual example, technicians all work together to make a guitar they find the material with the best acoustics, they work out the optimal body and neck shape for optimal acoustics, they work out the optimal string material and gauge etc etc. They may have made the best guitar ever so what do they need to test it?

    Re: Decisions, decisions...

    I did have this kinda feeling last year, when I can always find something that I don't like in every possible field. Now I am more accepting of the interesting/boring parts of the work, and try to keep entertained on the interesting part as much as possible. Some of it's pretty interesting, like making pretty pictures or searching for physical constraints and restrictions on a system so we can make better estimates and improve the accuracy of our simulations, but a lot of the time I'm just cleaning up someone else's mess (like optimizing/rewriting badly written packages so our simulations can run within the expected lifetime of the Sun). In all collaborative work, [someone's mess] always exists. Sometimes we clean theirs, sometimes they clean ours. So I suppose you will be alright if you have them balanced, and thus choosing the PI that is responsible and engaged with the team is a good step to have the mess in control. I'm sure these are important questions to someone, but there was absolutely zero attempt at explaining the relevance of these mathematical results to physical problems, and that bothered me a little Some people are really not good at presentations, but they should always be good at grant-writing or they won't be able to continue their research. When people write grant applications, they write in a very structured manner that all steps will lead to something, and that something is significant. My suggestion is when you encounter that kind of presenters, talk to them privately after the session to ask how is meromorphic equation relevant to the physical system, how they think is important and so on. They might be working on minute improvements, but never a zero-relevance topic to the field. It is perhaps just so obscure that we can't get it yet. In choosing between the two, I'm more inclined to do computational stuff. Maybe it's because I am not a strong mathematician, or maybe it's my survival instincts telling me that computational stuff would allow ...

    Re: Genuine Advice on my Prospects

    If you've already graduated, you might consider looking into an R&D internship for a company or a post-baccalaureate position at one of the national labs. They can be decent ways to boost your resume and keep you involved in research as you prepare for graduate school, and they typically pay pretty decently.

    I'm just parroting information here because I won't apply until the fall, but I've always heard that your grades are just one part of the application, and you can typically compensate for something like that if the rest of your application looks good. If you can make some connections with people and find someone who might have a spot for you in their research group (your advisor is invaluable here), that can be a big help, too. In a sea of hundreds of applications that all look more or less the same, it can be nice for someone on the graduate committee to see that you've taken a genuine interest in their school and have some real, bona fide connection to their research program. Again, I'm just repeating stuff I've been told, but it can't hurt. And like Nishitaka said, talk to your professors, particularly your research advisor. They'll know a lot more than most of us here.

    Decisions, decisions...

    I'm planning on applying to graduate school this coming fall, and I'm trying to get a better idea of what I'm interested in to help me as I look for schools. I've done a lot of undergraduate research in relativistic astrophysics from a computational side, and I find certain aspects of it interesting enough that I think I might enjoy continuing along the gravitational physics road for graduate school. Now, I see two real routes I can go: ⋅ I can stick with doing computational stuff and focus on numerical relativity, which has become a really big field over the last few years (in no small part due to LIGO). I already have a decent amount of experience with numerical methods and a lot of the questions in this field, but I'm really concerned about becoming a code monkey. Apparently I have a knack for debugging numerical codes, so that's what I end up doing most of the time when I would rather be tackling the physics questions. Some of it's pretty interesting, like making pretty pictures or searching for physical constraints and restrictions on a system so we can make better estimates and improve the accuracy of our simulations, but a lot of the time I'm just cleaning up someone else's mess (like optimizing/rewriting badly written packages so our simulations can run within the expected lifetime of the Sun). ⋅ I can transition into a more analytical route that leads to things like theories of quantum gravity, black hole thermodynamics, or other topics like that. My concern here, though, is that I'll end up in a group somewhere that is more fixated on the mathematical intricacies than the physical questions. I attended a gravity conference a couple months ago and noticed that an unfortunate number of my peers at other universities were presenting not on physics problems, but rather math problems, like the person who spent nearly an entire 18 minute presentation just discussing whether or not a particular equation was meromorphic, or the student whose en...

    No need to feel bad. Just calm down and get advice from your professors. They'll give you good advice, I bet.
    There's still plenty of time to think about it.

    Next time, you can perhaps try to be a little more specific on how you expect us to help, after you finished getting some ideas on where you want to go from your professors. Telling someone that their application is freaking bad/half bad/not bad is not gonna help anything, in my opinion. Take it slow and steady :)

    Theoretical Physics in Chicago

    Hello, just decided to search for some guidance on deciding my future.

    I am a rising senior at a liberal arts college, with a major in physics and math, (minor in philosophy and music). I have spent 2 summers doing Experimental Condensed Matter research, and one summer (current summer) doing Theoretical Quantum research.

    For reasons outside of physics (mostly family), I would like to spend the next few years of my life in Chicago. The idea of studying graduate physics in Chicago sounds convienent and easy, although I wonder if it may not be the right decision and I should wait until I have the freedom to live where ever and study where ever. I don't have a very specific field of interest, and I think I can get interested in most problems, as long as they remain mathy/theoretical/chalkboard style of work as opposed to experimental work. I have a ~3.95 GPA in physics, something around 3.7 in math. Haven't taken the GRE or the physics GRE, I am fairly confident that if I decide to I can get a decent score.



    Basically my questions boil down to

    1) Recommendations of physics (or possibly math) programs in Chicago that fit this mold. At this point in my life being paid to learn and work on problems sounds amazing. Perhaps this shows that I am not specifically interested in a certain problem enough, but browsing the research page of University of Chicago for example is a bit overwhelming in terms of possibilities. I would love to even just know recommendations of fields and areas of research as well.

    2) Advice on whether evening applying to schools within such a strict geographical limit makes sense.

    Re: Genuine Advice on my Prospects

    I appreciated the reply.

    In all honestly, I have not made a list of target schools yet. I have been so concerned with my grades, that I am unsure if I could even get into a school worth going too. I realize that may appear lacking in motivation, but I feel I don't have knowledge about what schools I should try and get into. I don't know what schools I have a realistic chance at, even If I do well on the PGRE. I apologize for the lack of detail; I have been researching how to study for the PGRE and GRE to improve other aspects of my application.

    Again,
    Thank you

    Hello,

    first, there is a wide spectrum of physics graduate schools. From the top all the way to the unknown ones.
    Please tell us your target schools, because you'll always be able to get into a school just that you might not want to go there.

    I am afraid to even ask the graduate students I am around because I am quite embarrassed by it.


    Get rid of these thoughts. As with my other advice in this forum, I advise you to go talk to as many credible people as possible. Especially, talk to your PI because he/she knows the admission process and can objectively guide you on where you realistically can go. That will solve your anxiety much more effectively than any advice from us whom you don't know personally.

    Genuine Advice on my Prospects

    I am recently graduated and I am planning on applying to graduate schools for physics (PhD) but I am very hesitant due to my low grades. I will be applying during the upcoming cycle (in late fall, early winter). I will put it simply: Undergraduate Institution: I believe around a top 20 in physics Major(s): Physics:Biophysics, Chemistry Minors(s): None Overall GPA: 3.02 Overall Physics GPA: 3.08 GPA last two years: 3.42 Physics GPA last two years: 3.52 (most of my classes over the last two years have been physics) GRE: Shall be taking both the general and PGRE in the fall, studying for ~ 2.5 months religiously. Research: Will have +1.5 years research by the time I apply. My name will hopefully be on a paper soon, perhaps two. If I continue through the fall, perhaps I can have my name on more. L.O.R.: One from research adviser, other two I am unsure as of yet. I was a transfer student into my university, my low grades are due to my first year at university in which I was in a different major that I despised. I then changed to physics and chemistry and loved my physics courses (chemistry of little importance to me). I decided to stay an extra year at university solely so I could major in physics. My goal is to become a physics graduate student (not necessarily in biophysics), as my research has been in electrostatics/electrodynamics/optics. Beyond any doubt, I know physics graduate school (PhD) is what I want to do. However, I know my GPA overall is horrid. Could anyone give me some advice on how bad my application might be? How much will this low GPA effect my prospects? How can I improve (GRE scores notwithstanding)? I am afraid to even ask the graduate students I am around because I am quite embarrassed by it. If I have the opportunity, I might try additional research through the summer to get another "good" letter of recommendation. I will also be studying for the GRE and PGRE with great devotion. Thank you to any who reply, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you consulted your past PIs on where you can go?
    Your undergrad institution is an Ivy, so with all your experiences, I presume it has a good graduate program too?

    If one of them say, "sure, you're welcome to do PhD with my group". That would settle your anxiety, no?

    In addition to asking them for a letter, you can also consult them on where you can apply to. They should know the playing field and can objectively assess your chances. Hearing from the ones in the field would be 100x more reassuring than from us, I guess.

    Chance me/Help with self doubts

    Hello everyone! I am applying to grad schools this fall. Please chance me for top programs in experimental physics (I have no intentions of doing theory, I'm dead set on experimental physics). I know nobody can say "Yes, you're guaranteed to get into school XX, have a great time!", but I'd appreciate any words or honest feedback, the process is stressful and I have enormous amounts of self-doubt. I've even resorted to making a sheet with a list of my accomplishments to cheer me up, but even that fails sometimes. If anybody can help with that, I'd love any advice. In any case, here's the stats. Major: Math & Physics Bio: URM, Domestic Male GPA: 3.79 Major GPA: 3.72. I had some Bs during frosh and soph year, but I focused on improving my study habits: got a 3.85 in sophomore spring and 4.0 both semesters during junior year, which is when I also took my most rigorous coursework (PDEs, E&M, Particle and Nuclear Physics, Math Methods of Physics, QM II). Undergrad institution: Ivy Physics GRE: 790/990 (retaking this fall) Research experiences: 0) I did some chemistry research in HS at a university with some friends for the science fair, and we got a peer-reviewed publication out in a really small peer-reviewed journal and it went to ISEF. 1) Spent summer after HS senior year doing work at a plasma lab, but it wasn't really intensive since it was an internship for high schoolers, so I didn't get too much hands-on experience. I'm not sure if this helps or hurts to put on my CV since I don't think it really shaped my trajectory at all. 2) Spent summer b/w frosh and soph year at my school researching, worked with that professor during sophomore spring and junior year. No pubs, but it's a new lab, and got a lot of hands-on experience and understand what it's like setting up equipment, setting up a new lab, etc. Great PI and he's also agreed to write a good letter. 3) Spent summer between soph and jr year at prestigious West Coast school, getting a publication...

    It depends on the admission criteria and score acceptance method each school uses:

    some requires scores to be valid at application time, some at enrollment time (like Harvard, which means you have to minus 1 year).
    there are also schools that accept scores on paper basis, or inputs the scores as they are received.
    Some other, checks your score when they review your application.

    Best check with the schools about this. It is a fair question and you will get a definitive answer.
