UWIP Winter 2017 Graduate Panel

On the 21st of Feb, UWIP invited a couple of the graduate students in the physics department to come over and discuss the process of applying to graduate school and what graduate school life is like. Besides feeding themselves with as much pizza as possible, many attendees had their questions answered about studying physics in grad school or just grad life in general.   For example, the graduate students answered question on how to choose the right research group and the cohorts that you actually click with, and whether getting into higher ranked institution is a good thing. They also answered questions on the physics GRE and how that contributes to the application for grad school.  Also, they gave out tips on how to get a recommendation letter, or the preparation an applicant need to make in the undergraduate years.

Overall, the graduate panel was a success!
