Tracking Graduate Admissions During COVID-19: Year One
written by Chris D. Porter, Galen T. Pickett, and Geoff Potvin
COVID-19 has disrupted nearly all aspects of global society, with severe impacts on many people around the world.  In 2020, supported by the APS Innovation Fund, we began a study to document and understand how COVID-19 has affected graduate admissions in physics, with a focus on the ways in which students and departments have been impacted.  In this Work in Progress paper, we report on the first year of this study, which collected data from the 2019-2020 admissions cycle.  We collected survey data from Directors of Graduate Study (DGS) and from students who applied to physics graduate school in this cycle (including students who did and did not begin graduate school in 2020), as well as conducted follow-up interviews with students and faculty to better understand the breadth of experiences of individuals affected.  Four themes emerged from this first year of data: shifts in international/domestic representation, program resilience as a key distinguishing feature during COVID, the breadth of student experiences in 2020, and concerns about the expectations for the future.
