Hi I'm graduating for a european physics/applied maths M.Sc. around September. I thought about applying for US grad school already during last autumn but I couldn't be sure I would be done in time, and my application would really have lacked the final beefing up of good results in the really advanced subjects anyway. So my question is regarding autumn application processes. Is there anyone taking in grads to physics programs in the autumn? I have not been able to find the right question to ask google. For my background: I took the quantitative GRE unprepared for garbages and laughs and ended up at 760 (pretty sure I could improve it).I also did the TOEFL, 116/120, I have almost a year's equivalent of full time research experience at some good labs and a bunch of references, perhaps even a first author publication to throw in there by autumn. As grades don't seem to be quite as important here as in the states I don't have a perfect 4.0 equivalent, but my more advanced graduate level courses are well above average. So I assume MIT is out of the question, but are there any decent uni's doing application rounds in the summer/early autumn that I could have a shot at? I'd really love not having to spend months studying for a PGRE.
