You won't get in to any of those places. Try schools ranked 60-150 here: http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-science-schools/physics-rankings

Thank you for reply. Yes I am also quite dissapointed with my PGRE score. I would better apply just in OSU and PSU where I have already sent my scores and two other (60-100 rank).
