Ok, so I timed out while writing this post (at work) so I will summarize:

- I'm new to the forums, and I look forward to meeting new colleagues and friends.

- I've been accepted to San Diego State, San Jose State, San Francisco State, Cal State LA and Cal State Long Beach for MS programs in Physics.

- I'd like to get advice on the strengths and weaknesses of these schools, if possible. Anything you know about any of these schools? Any advice?

- I'm looking to go into Renewable Energy, specifically Photovoltaic Module Fabrication & Design. Which would be the best school - of those listed - to pursue this at?

- I'm visiting SDSU, CSULA and CSULB next week; what questions should I ask the Graduate Advisors? When I take tours of the departments, what things should I be looking for in the labs/classrooms/elsewhere?

- I know these aren't top tier schools and I'm not a prestigious student, however I'm committed to working hard in whatever program I do attend and am earnestly asking for advice, so please refrain from comments not related to the topic at hand.


Once again, I look forward to hearing from everyone!


- LelandHockey

Hello,

I'm a recruiter from Cal State LA. In regards to our Physics department, I would highly reccomend you get in contact with Dr. William Taylor, Professor of Physics Emeritus at our university: [email protected]. He is very student oriented and could hopefully point you in the right direction. Hopefully we're the right campus for you, if not, I wish you the best in your academic career.
