If you want to do condensed matter experiment, you won't have the same list as a HEP-EX buff or a biophysics buff, let alone a gravitation experimentalist.

A lot of schools require an additional English assessment after you enroll and before you can do "human contact" TA. So I would apply as long as the school doesn't have a strict requirement on the TOEFL speaking part.
