Testing Do I need to take the Physics GRE for a Ph.D program if I have a Master's?

  1. Jan 5, 2012 #1
    Hi all,

    So, I'm finishing up my master's degree in applied physics (not much different from a master's in physics if you choose your courses correctly) and am looking into Ph.D programs. One thing I haven't seen much information about is the requirements if you are coming into the program with a master's, do most schools still require the Physics GRE in this case?

    My undergrad is in physics and I've been working for the last few years doing embedded software while going to grad school if that makes any difference.

    You'll need to check with the school. Required or not, I would take the test. You've got a masters - won't you do well?
