Universities for Astronomy PhD for low subject test score

  • 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.

Are you a domestic student or an international one?

I'm not sure about international students, but if you're a domestic student applying for astronomy that's actually an ok enough score for most schools so long as your GPA/references/etc are all ok. I remember talking to someone on the grad committee at Columbia a few years ago for example and he said as long as you were above 20th percentile they didn't really care about the PGRE scores.
