Please guide me

  • 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.

If you perform well on your subject test and meet the minimum TOEFL requirements at the schools you are applying; I think you would still stand a very good chance. Condensed Matter is a very popular choice among international students though and your competition will likely be fierce. As far as what schools to apply to I would say just keep searching. These forums have some very useful topics already.
