pgre is just 1 of many aspects of your application.

research experience, letters of recommendation & your grades are more significant than the pgre.
so there's no sure hit pgre score.
look into the appilcant profiles' thread.

does a phd program require a much higher score than a ms program??You guys have been speaking of 900+ to be a good one...does it hold good for a phd program?I know everything counts when it comes to admission but I am particularly concerned with the pgre scores.

thanks

None of the really good schools offer an MS in physics (as an objective for an incoming grad student). They offer only the PhD as an objective. But some students take the MS along the way, or on the way out of the department. But there are some schools that offer an MS only program. Sometimes these programs are offered for students who have full time jobs. They're usually not supported by the department and are more expensive.
