Need your opinion about my credintials

Postby fayez0 » Mon May 23, 2011 5:44 pm


I just need your opinion about my chances going to one of the top 10 schools:

I have masters in physics from NIU, GPA = 4.0, GRE Physics 840 = 79%
Publications exist. Currently I am preparing to retake my GRE but last time I got 640 (verbal) 800 (math) 4.5 (analytical)
I am an international student, however I can get 9-10 strong recommendations

Do you think I have a chance?

You only need 3 strong recommendations. I would retake the physics gre if you're really set on getting into the top 10, but you might be able to anyway.

Don't bother retaking the general GRE - your scores are fine. Internationals need good PGRE scores. Retake the PGRE if you can.
