All right, the subject GRE is in 2 days, and I'm freaking out a little, so I'm appealing to you all for some help.
I'm an American student from a liberal arts college, with a 3.96 GPA (3.9ish in physics). I have a second major in math, and have taken a graduate course in it (there is no grad program for physics here). I did one REU at the University of Chicago, out of which I'm getting a recommendation. I already took the general GRE, and got V:580 (80th %ile), Q: 790 (90th %ile), A: 5 (70th %ile). I'm applying to U of Chicago, NYU, U of Maryland and Penn State with an interest in experimental soft condensed matter physics.
My worry is about this subject test. My practice exams are not all that encouraging, with my scores hovering around 600. Do you think I have a chance of getting into these schools with those numbers?
P.S.: I'm a female applicant, so I've been told that will help. Any opinions?
