Understanding the graduate school selection process from students’ perspectives
written by Deepa Chari and Geoff Potvin
Students interested in graduate school may make application decisions, or choose a graduate school based on socio-economic factors, career interests, and their perceptions about graduate admissions/selection processes. To better understand students' graduate school decision-making, we conducted a Postgraduate Career Intentions Survey as part of the APS Bridge program ? a program designed to increase the number of students from the traditionally marginalized ethnic/racial groups who earn physics PhDs. In this paper, we examine the responses to identify the main factors influencing students' graduate school decision making, especially in the case of students from traditionally marginalized race/ethnic groups in physics. Our study provides important information to departments interested in diversifying and improving support for the graduate cohort.
