I know this is slightly off topic, but what, generally, is a "good enough" PGRE score for American observational astrophysics applicants? I have always thought it was around 650, but that was more of a guess on my part (Obviously, I would expect the cut off to be much higher for physics/cosmology programs).
Don't have a breakdown for observational vs theoretical, but the average scores I was able to find for astro departments were:
The averages for domestic applicants are lower, and I imagine the averages for observational are also lower. How much lower, I have no idea.
I will like to add more-
u Washington : 718
u chicago : 788 (with full financial aid)
U Arizona : 683
u mass : 600 ( suggested as minimum score)
virginia: 630 (recommended)
If anybody could tell avg. pgre score for these schools it would be really helpful :
yale , columbia, osu , michigan, ucsc ?
