low gre general scores

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

There is no doubt that he would take the exam again.
the q should be above 168, and if not it implies that he is a fool in physics where math is extremely important.
and the verbal should be above 150 so that most schools have possibility to have you admitted.
