I am currently senior, preparing to apply this winter for 2014 fall semester.
I have good GPA and some papers published, but unfortunately my PGRE score came out HORRIBLE...
I have taken the September and October exams and waiting for the last one to come..
but I guess my scores won't go up since October exam felt really difficult for me...(sobs)
Since I'm an international student, I've heard that I should have gotten scores higher than 900 (at least),
not to mention the reality that only shows lots of people admitted with almost perfect scores for good schools....
At first I thought of applying to top 10 schools but by Physics GRE I think my chances have gotten totally blurred.
Here's my score and other info about my publications...
Could anyone give me advice on where I can apply with safety?

First I thought this was okay, but...
I wasn't able to find people who went abroad with PGRE this low.. that's why I'm asking.
I know that domestic students can even get admitted to top ten schools with scores higher than 750
but not for international students..maybe
