Graduate School Panel

Many SPS members consider attending graduate school in Physics, Astronomy, Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, or other related fields; however, selecting a graduate program and going through the application process is anything but easy.

With the help of Professor Adil Hassam, Professor James Williams, and the UMD Graduate Student Committee, SPS held a Graduate School Panel on the topic "What I wish I had known about graduate school." Our panel answered our members' questions on how to apply to graduate school, how to pick the right graduate school for you, and what factors are taken into account by graduate admissions committees. They discussed the Physics GRE test, statement of purpose, letters of recommendation, and the importance of undergraduate research. The graduate students even answered questions on graduate life and challenges. SPS tries to help our students along their career paths from their first research project to their eventual graduate school decision. This is just one of the many ways we help prepare our students for their futures!
