I am applying to graduate school for a PhD in electrical engineering. I took the regular GRE in June and took the Nov. 8th physics GRE (I have a bachelor's in Physics too). I am not planning on hitting the submit button on my applications until December 10th when I find my score out and can fill it on the app.
However, since most of my apps are due the 15th, when should I send my GRE scores? I asked ETS if both scores could be sent for the cost of one but they avoided my question. Should I send my GRE scores now, and then send my Physics GRE scores later, after the 10th when I find out what they are (This would be twice as expensive!)?
