I really don't know what my chances are getting into the grad. schools of my choice. I plan on applying to UMASS Amherst, SUNY Stony Brook, BU, Rutgers, and UVA.
What I do know is that I have 2 summers and 3 semesters of undergrad research experience with a publication in prep. I'm dual majoring in Physics and Astrophysics at Florida Institute of Technology with a 3.31 cum. GPA and a 3.1 physics GPA. My general GREs, however, were in the 68% for verbal and quantitative. My consistent physics GRE practice test score is 580.
I'm distraught over my GRE scores and am worried that they will ruin my chances of getting into any of these schools. Do you think I still have a chance? Should I just take a year off and try again?
