I'm an international student and I want to persue PhD studies in one of the top 5 school in the US, I have great GPA 3.95, excellent lett. of rec., and I have one publication as primary author buuuuuuuuttt I have done terrible in my Physics GRE (620 %40)
. As may know there is no time to do again the test before the deadlines of the school.
My question is, do you think that there is any chance to be accepted in one of the the top 5 school this year, or I would wait until next year with a better GRE score. Also, if I finally apply and I am rejected, how this could affect my admission process next year in the same school that rejects me.
Thanks a lot for your answers!!!
