It seems like most schools that I've looked at don't offer a class in full on QM untill senior (according to the course sequences they universities have laid out -- these are probably maleable to a certain degree). I am mostly looking at state school as my GPA isn't good enough to get into any really prestigious schools (I'm applying to U. of Washington but probably won't get in). What I'm really wondering though is if QM isn't taken untill how are you expected to be able to pass the physics GRE, because as far as I know most people take the GRE at the beginning of their senior year? Is the material on the GRE basic enough to have been covered in a Modern Physics course? Also if anyone could supply me a list of classes that one must take before taking the GRE I'd be very thankful. Thanks.
