I'm greatly worried about the verbal GRE. I immigrated to US roughly 7 years ago (I have no problem communicating and writing papers but I am absolutely horrible in the GRE vocab).
My physics app so far is excellent otherwise, I am from a very big state university, very large physics faculty (pretty well respected):
GRE Verbal (probably will be really low)
GRE Math (shouldn't be a problem at all, I should ace it easily)
GPA: 3.97 ish
plenty of math + physics courses (I've overloaded myself with 5-6 courses every semester for a while)
Grad course: after this semester I'd have:
GR, QM (2 semesters), EM, QFT (3 semesters), Applied Group theory
1 REU freshman year
1 summer at my own university + 2 semesters (HEP experiment research)
1 REU at CERN (HEP experiment)
I have plenty of connections to a lot of school (my advisor said, like Princeton, Berkeley..etc). I will have rock solid recommendations + phone calls from people in my high energy group (from a very well respected theorists/phenomenologist ).
I have been active in SPS (president), I've tutored intro physics + math, and organized Physics GRE study session.
Other than that, I might just completely bomb the verbal GRE (maybe a 400 score). My goal is Princeton HEP theory for my grad school.
How much would a really low verbal affect me?
Thanks for all help.
