Folks, After a long time I am planning to get back to Physics - Was out of touch for about 11 years, during which I was in IT field. I have some questions that might see very basic (pl. bear with me) regarding GRE
1. Do I need to take the General GRE test before Physics ?
2. For registration itself IETS asks for schools to which the scores need to be sent. How can I select the schools - Is there a guideline to select best and most probable schools ?
3. Would admission into these schools (typically) require to showcase anything to show your interest in Physics (like papers, blogs etc ? ). What is it that these schools look for while admitting the students other than GRE score ?
4. Planning to give the Nov test, have about 1 month, 10 days - dedicated, hopefully no distractions - would this be sufficient to get decent score ? Do you recommend a plan or has someone posted anything that you know of.
Thanks much for your help in advance !
