Ok, here are my stats, I'm basically doing an M.S. this spring and next year to improve me record:
Physics GRE: took April 1 (expect a score around 600-700) Did a cram preperation will take again in Nov & Dec after a more thorough prep. I'm thinking I should score in the (800-900+) after more thorough preperation.
I belive I could rase my verbal if I worked at it, maybe significantly. When I took the General I did a rush job also because I was trying to take it for spring admissions, so I had basically zero preperation for the analytical writing, I belive I could do much better with some preperation.
Top 20 school, GPA ~3.78
Research: some independent stuff - not much really. I am hoping I can bolster this durring my M.S. program.
Teaching: TA for Quantum Physics my senior year & lots of tutoring experience over the years.
I can get good letters from my undergrad years & from my work years, and hopelly will get some from the M.S. program.
