Hello everyone, It's that time of the year... Applying for grad school, taking GREs and all that buisness and honestly I am freaking out. Currently waiting right now to get my PGRE scores back but it's starting to bug me and I could use a bit of persuasion that scores aren't all that. So here's the situation, tell me if it's hopeless or not, 3.7 Undergrad GPA 6 Months of Computational Physics research experience, no papers. 3 good recommendations 540 V/750 Q General GRE ? PGRE US-Domestic Male I am applying to UW-Madison and several other medical physics programs. I really have my heart set on Madison but here's what's aching me. When I first came out of the PGRE I thought I did fantastic, answered some 90 questions on it. Shortly after that I start realizing that I got such and such question wrong, you know the game. Gradschoolshopper.com lists really high PGRE scores for pretty much any and all grad schools. If it turns out that I only did so-so on the PGRE? Or maybe even badly... say 550-600. Are my hopes of UW-Madison just crazy?
