Wow. Nice to hear that there are some other girls around here.
I was wondering whether any of you are applying to astronomy/astrophysics programs and whether the expected Physics GRE scores are any different than for straight physics programs.
I sat for the test twice already, and canceled my scores both times. I went to a small liberal arts college where memorization was never emphasized and I've been out of school for a couple of years, so I'm kinda freakin' out here. Nov 3 is the end of the line for me and this stupid test, so any test prep advice would be much appreciated.
The best advice I have gotten so far which I haven't seen on this forum yet was to get a simple book on particle physics (I chose the Particle Garden) to brush up on the Standard Theory. It has been a nice break in between studying the heavier stuff, and I still feel like I'm being somewhat productive.
