Is there a page listing GRE scores and accepted schools?

Postby keradeek » Thu Oct 06, 2011 10:04 pm

I'm trying to see where I might be able to get into, with my GRE scores and my GPA. Some people mention of 'profile' page where people list their PGRE scores and the programs they were able to get into. Is there such a site? I have not been able to find it, although i have checked everywhere on this site for a few hours now.

Thanks.

The profiles pages are on this website and they are stickied (pinned to the top of the forum so they never leave) in the main forum called "Prospective Physics Graduate Student Topics" which you can get to from the main site http://www.physicsgre.com. You could have also found them by searching for the word "profiles."

I'll do you a solid and link to the topics here:

2011
2010
2009
2008

Seriously? You spent hours searching and you couldn't find it?

Go to : Prospective Physics Graduate Student Topics on the forum and the profiles for the years 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 are stickied at the top. I'm about to do something I never do, specifically I'm going to do your work for you, and provide you the links.

Profiles for 2008: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=975
Profiles for 2009: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1847
Profiles for 2010: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2824
Profiles for 2011: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3421

Um, just wondering, those who put their information down on the profile sticky, is that the norm of the accepted candidates as you guys have found out since last year? Because some of them look like amazingly great statistics, and it's scaring the crap out of me..

In general 95% of the profiles represent the make-up of the top students in that given application season. However, if you are applying to top 10 universities the profiles are actually a very good metric because they represent the competition well. It's been talked about before, but the majority of people and their profiles here are likely to represent th above average physics students.

Also, each application season, the very top students tend to post their profiles first. It's been this way every year since the profile threads started in 2008. So don't be intimidated by what has been posted so far in the 2012 thread. Go back and take a look at the 08 and 09 threads... you'll see that there are a handful of amazing profiles early in the threads, but afterwards the more normal students started posting theirs. Part of the reason this happens is that top schools have December deadlines, so students applying there have to have their apps ready early and their profiles are pretty much complete.
