A good score on the Physics GRE is an important ingredient in applying to graduate school. To help prepare for the test, the CPAPC organizes Physics GRE Boot Camps alternately for students from northern and southern California. [Click to see sites from earlier bootcamps: Feb 2011 (CSU Long Beach); Sep 2011 (UC Davis); May 2012 (CSU Long Beach); Sep 2012 (UC Davis); Aug 2013 (CSU Long Beach).]
PHYSICS GRE BOOTCAMP
August 22-23, 2014
California State University
The CPAPC GRE Boot camp is intended for students from Southern California.
The boot camp primarily targets students underrepresented in Physics from CSU campuses, but is open to all students at local CSU and UC campuses.
Lodging for Friday
night, August 22, 2014 is provided for students identified as belonging
to underrepresented groups in Physics and come from farther away.
Contact Prashanth Jaikumar (contact info. below)
for information on
lodging once you have registered. We
can only guarantee lodging if you register by August 10, 2014. Other
students may qualify depending on available funding. (Underrepresented
