Northern California
Graduate Physics
Admissions Bootcamp

This camp is for upper-division physics majors considering graduate study. Our mission is to inform you so you can make good decisions for yourself, and to give you opportunities to mingle with current and former graduate students. We also give you insight into the admissions process and how to strengthen your application. For rising seniors, a major factor still under your control is studying for the Physics GRE exam, so in past years we provided a practice exam and skill strengthening through group work. The group work also provided opportunities for students to network with peers throughout the state. Due to Covid, the camp will be a shortened event held on Zoom and will omit GRE practice.

Registration now open for the 2021 camp!
